The mess called Greater Portmore

Published:Thursday | July 10, 2014 | 12:00 AM


I would like to show you things that are very wrong in the communities which make up Greater Portmore.

Come, let me show you a pipe under a bridge that for two years the National Water Commission has admitted it is rotten. They fix it this week, it bursts next week, and then it is allowed to leak for up to two months before it is fixed again. This water is running into an earth drain and because of that, the drain always has trees growing in it.

Come, let me show you how homeowners plant trees to beautify their premises and are now causing motorists to drive in the middle of the road. At some intersections, you cannot see to your left or right, unless you drive out into the road.

Come, let me show you how homeowners build their gates that open into the road and oftentimes leave them open.

Come, let me show you how homeowners build their garages across pedestrian walkways, forcing pedestrians to walk on to the road.

I have so much more to show you. Just come!
