Middle Region upgrade nears completionPOSTED: 05/30/12 10:33 PM
MIDDLE REGION – Eighteen months of inconvenience are slowly coming to an end for Middle Region residents as the upgrade of their district nears completion. After the groundbreaking ceremony that took place on February 17 of last year, contractor MNO Vervat got to work. The road that had been in a deplorable state for a long time was broken up to allow for the installation of huge four-foot drainage and sewages pipes.
The upgrade furthermore includes the construction of a water tank, bringing overhead cabling underground, streetlights and pavements for pedestrians.
Ruan said last year that the project has a long history. “This is not just a facelift, it is a total overhaul. I told residents two years ago to assess the value of their properties and to do it again two years from now. They’ll notice a difference.”
The project is scheduled for completion by the end of June.
