From Bottom to boulevard
MOVE OVER WATERFORD BOTTOM; make way for Waterford Boulevard.
The familiar and busy artery into Bridgetown, one of the favourite spots for illegal dumpers, is being given a facelift.
And with more improvements to come, Minister of Environment and National Beautification Trevor Prescod said the days of rusting fridges, mattresses and smelly bags of garbage should be over as people viewed the area in a new light.
He added he believed the beautified area would be, in itself, enough deterrent to would-be illegal dumpers.
“People treat the environment the same way you treat them. I am telling you what we intend to do in Waterford Bottom, you would not see that because we are going to transform it into a boulevard. Nobody would do the things on a boulevard that they would do in a bottom. So Waterford Bottom would be treated according to how people perceive it.
“And when we transform it into a boulevard, they would treat it how they normally treat a boulevard.” (HLE)
