, taxi drivers providing services to thousands of residents are to date without a permanent car park.This has been a sore issue for the taxi operators as well as residents since the park’s location keeps changing as developmental works around the community occur.Ironically no developments are done in relation to the construction of a car park.The temporary park is located near Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) on a small area that can only facilitate six cars maximum at one time.

They noted that the park is in a deplorable condition and while they sometimes fill the huge potholes with sand it is not enough.One driver stated that, “The wear and tear is too much for us to handle. And then too when passengers come with all the sand and mud they sit in the car and dirty it and we have to feel the squeeze.

The vendors contend that wherever the park is, vending would occur since that is where the customers are.A taxi forced to utilize the deplorable Diamond Car Park They noted that the market tarmac that was constructed almost two years now is non-operational but they do not desire to go to that location.However,Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping

Prior to them occupying the small plot near DDL they were forced to park on the corner of the East Bank Public Road because M&M Snackette produced legal document displacing them from the corner at the entrance of the scheme. Today an M&M Snackette is erected in that same location whilst the drivers are without a car park.
