Deplorable condition of Cross Roads Market

Published:Monday | September 20, 2021 | 12:09 AM

THE EDITOR, Madam:

For some time now the Cross Roads Market has been in a deplorable state. The market yard is riddled with huge potholes. Depending on what day one goes there, you can be expected to be greeted with an overflowing garbage skip with a large swarm of flies feeding on the garbage.

If you are unlucky to enter the market at the same time as a vendor is dumping garbage, you will find yourself engulfed in the swarm of flies that are flying out of the skip. When did we become so untidy in this country that, as citizens, we would accept such poor sanitary conditions from our state authorities? Surely we can do better than this as a country.
