Dear Editor: Integrated Development and Construction Ltd (IDC) is conducting a road rehabilitation project in Daban Saltibus. I am very concerned for residents since we are faced with many public safety hazards. The road is very muddy when it rains causing a number of vehicles to drift.
This is a very treacherous road because it has a lot of precipices. The IDC employees work haphazardly paying no regard to the residents. There are no signs on the road to caution those persons commuting this route.
There is a lot of gravel on the road which has caused extensive damage to a young lady’s vehicle. There is an electric pole in the middle of the road for more than a week now. We are aware that we will be faced with inconveniences during this project but these are public safety hazards.
Residents have appealed to the manager in charge of this project to no avail. Residents are fed up and we want to use this forum to air our concerns.
We are proposing the following:
Proper signs are placed on the road to alert commuters of the dangers ahead.
The pole in the road is removed as it poses a serious hazard.
The gravel is swept off the road.
The areas that become muddy when it rains be addressed.
A concerned resident.
