Gratitude expressed to vendors who complied with removal notice

The Ministry of Public Works wishes to thank those vendors who willingly complied and adhered to notices to vacate illegal structures along Providence Access Road (Red Road/Massy Road) and the East Bank Public Road at Providence.

The Ministry wishes to make clear that meetings were held with those vendors, and notices were issued prior to the final notice being issued on Thursday.

Notices were issued to all vendors at that location in November 2022, with a six (6) weeks grace period to vacate.

Final Notices were also served to vendors on the Road Reserve at Mocha Access Road, Herstelling/Farm Housing Scheme Access Road, Diamond Public Road, Sheriff Street, Mandela Avenue and Grove through to Timehri along the East Bank Demerara public road.

Further, the Ministry wishes to commend those right-thinking vendors for their positive response, and advise all vendors and persons with other encumbrances along sections of the country’s public roads to remove those as well.

Meanwhile, hire car operators are also being urged to operate in a responsible manner.
