It has been six weeks since a section of the main entrance of Festival City, North Ruimveldt, Georgetown was cordoned off and a drain, measuring some six feet in depth, was excavated to channel water from the nearby trench.
Now, residents are calling on the Public Infrastructure Ministry and other authorities to look into the matter, since they cannot traverse the roadway. They also informed that contractors have been moving at a slothful pace, much to their discomfort.
One resident, Joseph Godfrey informed Guyana Times on Wednesday that the situation was distressing. He had believed that the road would have been accessible in a short time, but realised that this was not the case after waiting for over one month. The road was split completely to allow water from the trench to flow to the other side. This was followed by other works to fix the drainage system.
