Demolition of City market under way
DEMOLITION HAS BEGUN on the Fairchild Street Market in The City.
When a DAILY NATION team visited on Saturday there was a pile of large stones on the site.
Car washer Eden Scantlebury, who works in the area, said Ministry of Transport and Works personnel had begun work last Monday – starting with the concrete.
“They usBobcat and jackhammer. I think they did a very good job,” he said.
The inside of the market has been almost cleared, with only the side stalls still in place, and half of the concrete tables outside removed.
However, there remain pools of stagnant water and the pungent smell of urine. (CA)
