Grenada: The St John’s River Migration Project would be around 70 percent completed ahead of the rainy season of 2022. This information has been released by the contractor of sunrise construction company limited, who further informed that the company has commenced the construction work on two packages (package one and two).
According to the government of Grenada, the residents of the region believe that the government has eased the burden of flow that has plagued the area for years.
One of the residents informed the government of Grenada and stated, “I experienced telephone poles were broken, and Grenada Carlos come back and put telephone poles around the place, so how important some people may think that the wall is a bit high and as per experience how important do you see it well we have to see what’s going on because I mean to say the world is true, but we have to do for beneficial for the people around.”
Yet another counted the benefits of the project for him and other advantages and outlined that “The project is a good project you know from the river coming our hamburger business you have known it’s not really bad as it is a good development because apparently if we have to move the government will have to develop place a little better because you have more space and as you see the business on them are wrong here most likely is large business. I just hope even though they move the business my business especially they put it back in a more year or better.”
