Inconsiderate motorists, unsanitary people, and extremely loud music were three of the main concerns raised by residents of Westbury Road and the avenues close to Spring Garden Highway during a town hall meeting on Thursday night.
During a meeting with producer of Bridgetown Market, Keith Squires, at Westbury Primary School, the residents had some of their questions answered along with collecting vehicle passes for easy access to their homes during the four-day event from Friday, August 1 to Monday the 4th.
The consensus among residents was this “is the worst time of the year for us” as they told of how motorists blocked them into their homes until the wee hours of the next day or not allowing them into their garages or parking spaces.
Those who live in Westbury New Road, in particular, said people who attended the Pic-O-De-Crop Finals at Kensington Oval and or Foreday Morning parked early and often did not return until the revelry was over without thought as to the inconvenience they posed to others.
The attendees said the problem could be seen more during Foreday Morning and Grand Kadooment and suggested passes for Bridgetown Market be dated to include Kadooment Day. (Green Bananas Media)
