[www.inewsguyana.com] – Residents of Zeeburg, West Coast Demerara(WCD) have taken matters into their own hands to reduce road fatalities and property damage by filling a major pot hole on the main road.
The self – help initiative was organized by Businessman, Mohamed Sheriff, who is also a resident of the community. The initiative was undertaken following the death of 20 – year – old Kevin Sackichan, who crashed after driving into the same pot hole on Friday night (November 21).
Sheriff told iNews that a number of other business operators came together and funded the work and were able to fill the pot hole this morning; however he complained about the many other dangerous pot holes in his area and along the roads in Region Three.
The business operators in that area invested over $50,000 to fill the pot hole. In this regard, Sheriff said it would be unfair and costly to have business operators dig further into their pockets.
