It is closing in on a year since white sand was dumped on the western lane of the roadway in front of Lots 4-5 of Hand-en -Veldt Mahaica, East Coast Demerara. To date the sand is still on the roadway and it has now spread to the middle of the roadway. This is a traffic hazard. Road users are forced to choose to walk, ride or drive on the sand or to wait until the traffic is clear before crossing the road in order to pass the location by using the eastern lane.
Editor, I brought this matter to a councilor of the Unity-Vereeniging Neighbouring Democratic Council (NDC) over a month ago. In addition, there are police vehicles drive pass that area several times each day. To compound the issue, there are two pot holes on the road at the northern edge of the sand which drivers have to navigate around as they traverse that location.
How much longer will road users have to wait before this menace is rectified? Enough!
