Drivers, motorists and pedestrians that commute on the Queen Victoria Avenue may have seen or heard the dangers that the uncovered manholes are posing. It’s been several weeks that this stretch has been rehabilitated but these remain uncovered and according to Mayor Kevin Bernard, the issue needs to be addressed with urgency since many have fallen victim to the holes.

“Our operations manager has made contact with the people that are working, the supervisor on the ground and we keep hearing that they are working on them, they are working on them and at one point we heard that the grills are being worked in Belize city and that they are waiting to be delivered to them in fact this morning before I receive your call regarding this matter I spoke to my operations manager to go back and check and their response that they gave him is that they are simply checking with their supervisor but while people are waiting it is creating a problem and it is dangerous and I had several complains where a child actually fell their and so I call upon the contractor and the ministry to look at that as urgency and we have a holiday coming up and we see work being done at San Antonio road and they have left this area so I think that they need to see some attention being placed on the sidewalks that were built here on Queen Victoria Avenue and Bethias Lane.”

Our attempts to get comment from the CEO in the Ministry of Works have proved futile. We’ll have more on our interview with the Mayor in tomorrow‘s newscast.
