This man is destroying our streets
Please allow me a space in your daily news paper letter column to share what is happen in region 5 particularly in the Woodley Park Area under the current PPP\C administration.
Residents of Woodley Park have been complaining for decades about the destruction of its streets that by a well known individual.
Several reports have been made to the NDC in the area and the RDC Regional Chairman but nothing is being done to correct the situation. This man traverses the streets every day, rain or sun, with his tractors and trailers and during the reaping time with his combine.
He is now destroying the Village office street as he now uses that small street to go in and out of the area and the NDC staff look on as if they cannot do anything. This said individual about twelve years ago was the one that was in favor to have street bars but when he started to do large scale farming he was the one to break the bars, so that his equipment can be taken in and out of the village.
The streets are in a very deplorable state, the village office street has a pond in the centre of it and when it rains it is hard to gain access in and out of that street. During the dry period vehicles have to use another access street because of the damage done. Residents did some patching with bricks but yet this man continues driving on this path. He has already destroyed the southern half of the School Street, Takoor Street and the back street (Freddie st.), those are in a very bad state.
In the nights it’s hard to see where you are going and this said individual sometime parks his tractor with plow, chippers and gage wheel on the street without lights or reflectors. Many times persons traversing the streets tend to ride or walk into those equipments’ and get hurt; when they complain nothing is being done.
The RDC and NDC must take a stand to correct this situation as early as possible. How can they allow their officer to destroy public infrastructures and make life miserable for the residents? The residents of Woodley Park demand justice.
I hope that Mr. Benn will take note of the parking that is dangerous and mostly it is done on Government property.
I am appealing to the RDC chairman to look into this matter as early as possible so that residents of Woodley Park Reef Section can have better access in and out of the area.
