As a result of this, the roads are easily eroded and are in need of frequent rehabilitative works.As such, the residents are calling for an intervention and for the roads to be properly done in order for their distress to end.“You think is fair? Not all of us have vehicles so we usually have to walk out the streets to get to the main road before we can catch a car and it hard, because sometimes you walking into work with muddy shoes and in a state of embarrassment because of the roads, you head does hurt when you think of walking out there and oh lawd, when the rain fall, its worst” Natasha Abraham complained.Shayann Benjamin told the Guyana Times that as a result of the poor roads, taxis are refusing to make pickups at certain locations.“Sometimes you need a taxi to go somewhere and when you tell them which street, they outright tell you that they can’t make that, that their vehicles get mess or damage” she explained.Another resident, a taxi driver detailed the horrors of ploughing in the potholes.“I was struck for several hours because I take the risk to drive through one of the streets, but the hole was deep bad but rain was falling the day so I couldn’t see how deep the hole was. So I decide now to drive through and I end up stick in deh. You know how long, I try but nothing worked. One of my partner had to come with he bus and he pull me out”.In 2018 Minister within the Communities Ministry, Valarie Adams-Yearwood had promised to have the roads in Parfaite Harmonie upgraded but nothing has been done since.
