Construction company warns pedestrians
C.O.WILLIAMS CONSTRUCTION is urging pedestrians traversing Redman’s Village to practice caution as they complete work on the sidewalk pavement there.
In a Press release on Thursday, they said while work had been done, it was still necessary to be careful.
“Earlier this week the C.O. Williams Construction team at Redman’s issued a stern warning to pedestrians to observe the barriers and signage which had been put into place to prevent any pedestrian from using the pavement there.
“This became necessary following the recent excavation work on that segment of the roadway which compromised the integrity of the pavement. The construction team decided to isolate the pavement in the interest of public safety.
“It is expected that the area will be back-filled and compacted by June 15 to such a point that this would not pose any major problem for pedestrians, but they must continue to exercise caution in all areas of the construction zone.”
A DAILY NATION team visited the area on Saturday and observed the area was still barricaded off to prevent passage. There was also evidence the area had been filled in to a point but the work was still incomplete. It is expected the work will continue today.
In addition, the C.O.Williams team wished to inform the public the bus stop at Redman’s had been relocated further south and complemented the public for its understanding and compliance.
“The construction team compliments the commuters who are complying with the site instructions and observing the barriers, caution tape and signage. When citizens see barriers and caution tape, under no circumstances must the venture beyond these points as these measures have been put in place to protect their own safety.” (PR/CA)
