Businesses Face Flooding as Rains Set In

first_imgThe main road passing through Clara Town and Vai Town communities on the Bushrod Island, was once again flooded with water, which caused losses for businesses and hampered taxpayers’ movements.The situation forced RITCO, a wholesaler of alcoholic beverages and other businesses in those communities to shut their doors. Traffic was also at a standstill for most of the day as the water receded very slowly owing to poor drainage condition in those communities, which are affected every raining season.People in the affected areas, including vehicle owners, expressed concern over the situation. They wondered when the government will take  the drainage problem on the Bushrod Island seriously, as both communities along this major route get flooded every year.Some observers were heard saying that the government needs to take into account the fact that such flooding causes revenue losses and so it (government) must ensure that the situation is controlled and does not affect taxpayers in the process.“Is there any plan by government to tackle these kinds of situations, especially along this major route, which has some of the heavily populated communities and big businesses and National Port of Authority/Freeport?,” a gentleman, who was struggling to remove his car from water asked.Everyone with whom the Daily Observer spoke was frustrated at government’s handling of the situation and asked that GOL steps up to solve the drainage problem once and for all so that come the next raining season, it won’t be experienced again.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
