THE deplorable road leading to the fishing dock at Number 4 Dam at Albion, East Berbice/Corentyne, Region 6, will be fixed, and the channel where fishing boats are docked will be widened.

These promises were made by Special Assistant to Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo, Gobin Harbhajan, and Liason Officer to the Office of the President, Barbara Pilgrim, during a recent meeting with residents and members of the Fishing Co-op Society of Albion.

The meeting sought to hear complaints of residents and fisher folk, and provide solutions to those complaints.

Harbhajan said that, for a number of years, residents have been asking for the road to be fixed. Fishermen who traverse the road daily have complained bitterly about its state and the need for it to be fixed urgently.

The Prime Minister’s representative said that after consulting with the relevant authority, a commitment was made to fix the road, to the benefit of some 400 residents and fishermen.
Work is expected to commence shortly.

The fishermen have also pleaded for the widening of the mouth of the channel where their boats are docked. They said that, over the years, the channel became narrow from the build-up of silt and vegetation.

After listening to their complaints, Harbhajan told the fishermen that work on widening the channel will commence soon.

The two government representatives also said they would be visiting other communities to hear about the issues affecting residents and to see how best they can have those issues addressed.
