I would like to advise Mr Dennis V Debidin who penned a letter in the Stabroek News (‘The land alongside the Berbice Bridge road should be reserved for commercial development,’ 27.2.09) that lands on both sides of the Berbice River are transported lands. Our caring government paid present day prices for the area of land used for the Berbice River Bridge Access Road. With regards to another letter-writer (name given as Abraham David) in the Stabroek News (‘The land alongside the Berbice Bridge road should become a national park because of its unique “wetland” ecosystem,’ 3.3.09), I would like to say that the land is to be developed into a business and housing area. Anyone can visit the #38 Neighbourhood Democratic Council and can enquire about these lands.
