Funding deficit to blame for half-finished Timehri road works

-regional official

Lack of funding is responsible for only half of Reid Avenue, Timehri being rehabilitated, according to Amina Hinds, Deputy Regional Executive Officer of Region Four.

Hinds made this disclosure following a protest by residents of Reid Avenue, which is commonly known as ‘Alliance Road’ on Tuesday, during which they slammed sub-standard work being done on the road or no work done at all on the latter half of the main access road in and out of the community. There was a united cry for a better road and drainage as well.

Hinds told Stabroek News that works would be completed on the entire road when this year’s budget is passed by the National Assembly. Hinds further stated that the amount of money the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) had in its coffers was not enough to see the completion of the road in Timehri, but asserted that Reid Avenue, one of many identified last year by the RDC to be repaired, and the repairs would be done if the budget is passed.
