The rehabilitation project for the Orange Walk Central Park carried out by the BMDP is currently under its second stage with the upgrade and paving of South Park Street, North Park St and Lovers Lane.
But while many are pleased with the upgrading of these streets, as the old saying goes, progress brings problems as today merchants from North Park Street were not too happy when works began in front of their establishments right before the hustle and bustle of the Christmas holidays.
Kevin Bernard- Mayor OW
“We saw this morning that they continued the work grading North Park Street so we had the vendor of the area and they came to visit the council, and they were all concerned because it is a very busy period, it is Christmas time and everybody wants to make their money and they believe that if they would have gone and done the other side would affected their business tremendously over these few days so what we did, the administrator went out immediately with the merchants and then I went tout their as well and we spoke to the project director from SIF and he has informed us that and the contractor that the work will resume until the 28th of December and I think that has quelled the issue but we also want to ask the residents that to bear patience because as you know anytime work is taking place in this manner it does create inconveniences and even the merchants we ask them that when the work resumes that they bear patience because at the end of the day you want a good job to be done.”
Mayor Bernard assured that the problem was resolved in a peaceful and effective manner and he asks both residents and merchants to be patient and cooperative with upcoming works to uplift our town.
