The Ministry of Housing and Water has committed to fixing damaged roads in Fourth Ordinance, Berbice, Region Six, which were destroyed due to ongoing works on a new housing development project by the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA).
Minister of Housing and Water Collin Croal on Monday visited Fourth Ordinance in Berbice following concerns by residents over the deterioration of the internal roads. He was accompanied by two contractors who have been awarded contracts for the new housing development project.
Residents complained that the heavy-duty trucks which are being used in the community have been causing much disruption to their daily activities.
Nevertheless, Minister Croal stated that the ministry is committed to effecting repairs to the roads damaged during the duration of the housing project. The project is expected to be completed in October.
In the interim, the CH&PA said that it would be engaging residents of the community to communicate and generate feedback as the housing project progresses.
Apart from Fourth Ordinance, the Minister also visited several new ongoing housing development projects and made a brief stop at No.46 Village, Corentyne, to engage the NDC on other issues
