The Ministry of Public Infrastructure is condemning the destruction of road features on the Main Road on the East Coast of Demerara, between the recently completed road expansion sections from Betterhope to Belfield.
“It has been brought to the attention of the Ministry that the Best Buy Variety Store was on Thursday, June 4, 2020 seen dismantling the road features installed in the vicinity of Non-Pariel for the purpose of customer parking. While this may seem convenient to business owners, the Ministry strictly prohibits the demolishing of the road features and wishes to inform residents and business owners that the Ministry will not be granting permission for the removal of the safety features along the East Coast of Demerara Highway,” the ministry said in a statement today.
Additionally, the Best Buy Variety Store will be held accountable for the destruction of public property which damages are estimated at a cost of US $4,000, the MoPI noted.
The Ministry is pleading with residents and business owners along the East Coast of Demerara to refrain from destroying much needed safety features.
Citizens are hereby asked to report any such activities to the Ministry’s Public Relations Department via telephone on: 592-227-0799, via E-mail at email@example.com or Facebook Messenger at Ministry of Public Infrastructure.
