FOLLOWING requests from residents and farmers during a recent meeting, the Region Two administration has begun the construction of a footpath bridge at Dartmouth.
Regional Vice-Chairman, Humace Oodit, said that the promise was being fulfilled and very soon moving around will be much easier for residents. He said that farmers will also have better access to their rice lands.
He said that farmers had reached out to regional officials venting their concerns about how difficult it was for them to get to their farmlands located at State Farm and surrounding areas.
Oodit said the construction works began on Friday, June 3 and, by Saturday, June 4, farmers and the other residents of the community will have full access.
On Friday, regional officials, including the Prime Minister’s representative, Arnold Adams, met with farmers at the location.
Farmers expressed gratitude to the regional officials for their prompt action.
“We are glad for this. It’s hard for farmers and we are glad that this happen,” Stanley Griffith said.
The regional officials assured the residents that they will continue to serve those living in the various communities.
