Deteriorating Roads in Kaneville
I have been a resident of Kaneville, Grove, East Bank Demerara for the past ten years. During this time there have been several attempts to get the relevant authorities to assist us in changing the state of our roads.
From time to time, you would hear that some Minister would be visiting to speak to residents about any issues that are making them uncomfortable. But time passes and these visits never occur.
About a year ago we were blessed to see that the main access road was done but the cross streets were left in the same “shabby” state. Every time it rains the potholes in the streets are getting deeper and this is mostly due to the big sand trucks that work ply this route on a regular basis.
Because of the state of the roads you don’t get short drop cars to take you home after certain hours at night; taxi services refuse to work in the area because of this also.
Some of these holes are like ponds on the streets. It is very uncomfortable to travel in a vehicle to go through any one of them. And then you have to drive very slowly in order not to get the bottom of your vehicle scraped and damaged.
I am pleading on behalf of all the residents residing here for someone to hear our call for help and assist us, even if it is to grade down the cross streets and level them. Anything that would make us a bit more comfortable while we are traveling would be appreciated.
