Some residents living at Six Men’s, St Peter, are getting jittery over the construction of a road in their community by the developers of the multimillion-dollar Port Ferdinand marina project.
Only three weeks ago they were informed by parliamentary representative Owen Arthur, at a meeting which was held at one of the neighbourhood shops, that Government had given permission to the developers of the marina and condominium resort to construct a road at Six Men’s Village which is next door to the marina.
Some residents are, however, concerned about the environmental impact the road will have on the small community, particularly whether it will be used by heavy-duty vehicles. They are also questioning why the developers have been in such a rush to build the road.
Pointing to the closeness of the road to two neighbouring houses, an apprehensive resident, who did not want to give his name, charged that an environmental impact study should have been undertaken before construction began.
