[www.inewsguyana.com] – Fifteen roads and the rehabilitated Enmore Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) which were done under the Community Roads Improvement Programme (CRIP) were commissioned on Tuesday by Minister of Housing and Water, Irfaan Ali who assured of Government’s commitment to further develop the East Coast community.
The CRIP programme catered for the rehabilitation of the NDC building, training of staff, development of a maintenance manual, rehabilitation of 5.5 kilometres (km) of roads, the cleaning, reshaping and realigning of existing roadways, drains, and the construction of new drains in Nursery School St, among other areas.
“There is a lot of work indeed that is needed for the development of this community and we are going to continue as a Government to provide investments that are required to improve the lives of every citizen of Enmore and its environs,” Minister Ali said while delivering an address at the commissioning ceremony held at the Enmore NDC compound.
CRIP is a US $18.7M project, which addresses the construction of numerous community roads, amounting to 100 kilometres (km), some of which are funded by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) and the remainder by the Government.
This project is aimed at improving the livelihoods of residents living in Regions Three, Four, and Six in selected communities by improving access to housing, education, health and other social infrastructure.
