The $604 million Parfaite Harmonie, West Bank Demerara access road has been crumbling over the years, so frustrated residents are now calling for street lights to be installed with the aim of preventing accidents and robberies which have been occurring frequently.The access road is quite narrow and straight, which often results in motorists speeding, despite the placement of speed bumps.Many complain that they fail to even notice the speed humps on the dark road at night, owing to inadequate lighting.The lack of street lights along this major carriageway has not only resulted in accidents, but also a high incidence of robberies. Compounding the problem are the potholes that line the roadway, despite efforts to patch same.Drivers, in trying to dodge these potholes, often end up colliding with other vehicles, or in severe cases even running off the road.Just recently, a driver almost lost his life on the dark road, after swerving from a cow that he had barely noticed and his vehicle ended up toppling a number of times before coming to a halt.Back in February, a 13-year old was battling for her life at the Georgetown Public Hospital after she was struck down on the Parfaite Harmonie road.The teen, Nandraine Budram, of Lot 250 Parfaite Harmonie, was struck down by a minibus while riding a pedal cycle. Budram had sustained severe injuries to the head.Several other residents have since been involved in accidents, which have gone unreported owing to their nature. Villagers there have said that vehicles often collide with each other while trying to dodge potholes or animals.The road was commissioned in September 2014 after BK International and Gaico Construction undertook the project.Since the commissioning, the road has rapidly deteriorated as a result of the high volume of heavy-duty vehicles that traverse the road transporting building materials, among other things, as the housing scheme rapidly develops.Just last year, workmen from Gaico Construction Company were fixing potholes along the road, which was later outfitted with several speed humps following a deadly accident early this year.Residents are now calling for street lights to be placed along the roadway as soon as possible.
Dipcon judgementThe Attorney General’s chambers has filed an appeal of the Full Court’s decision to reject attempts to stay a court order directing Finance Minister Winston Jordan to pay Dipcon Engineering US$2 Million by today (Monday) or face jail time.Court of AppealAccording to the appeal, Justice Priya Sewnarine-Beharry “misdirected herself in a number of points when she rejected their motion.” The AG’s contentions are a repeat of previous arguments they had made, which were ultimately turned down by Justices Diana Insanally and Someone Morris-Ramlall. The Justices found that the application for the stay had no merit.The state is seeking to have the Appeal Court set aside, reverse or vary Justice Sewnarine-Beharry’s judgement. Additionally, the State is also seeking costs. Attorney General Basil WilliamsOn Monday, Minister Jordan said that he is not a “gangster” who is ready to face jail and that he is hoping that President David Granger can save him.Finance MinisterWinston JordanMore details in the Tuesday, July 07, 2019 edition of the Guyana Times.

The settlement also sets the stage for elimination of some of the more controversial aspects of the last modernization plan, including a ground transportation center at Manchester Square, development of a people mover system and razing Terminals 1, 2 and 3. LAX plans have been in the working stage since 1993, when then-Mayor Richard Riordan first proposed a major expansion to accommodate 100 million passengers a year. After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, former Mayor James Hahn changed the thrust of the plans to emphasize security and agreed to scale back passenger limits at the facility. But Hahn’s efforts were stymied by various lawsuits. After Villaraigosa was elected – partly on a platform of opposing Hahn’s plans for the facility – he was able to negotiate the settlement. Villaraigosa on Wednesday hailed the council’s approval. “This is a rational, community-sensitive plan that will allow for sensible improvements to be made to LAX – improvements that will benefit the people of Los Angeles and the millions of world travelers who depend on this airport,” Villaraigosa said. El Segundo Mayor Kelly McDowell also offered praise. “El Segundo was one of the first to raise concerns about this plan,” McDowell said, crediting the work of former Democratic Assemblyman Mike Gordon, who organized the initial campaign against the airport plan. Gordon died last year of cancer. “It is gratifying to get to this point,” McDowell said. “But what is most important – outside the four corners of this agreement – is that we have developed a partnership. That might be as much benefit as the settlement itself.” Rick Orlov, (213) 978-0390 email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Clearing the way for a massive $4 billion modernization project at Los Angeles International Airport, the Los Angeles City Council signed off Wednesday on an agreement that ends the threat of lawsuits by neighboring cities. The council voted 11-0 after a closed-door session to ratify the agreement, hammered out by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, council members and officials from Los Angeles County, the cities of El Segundo, Inglewood and Culver City, and the grass-roots Alliance for a Regional Solution to Airport Congestion that has been fighting all LAX plans. While final approval from the Federal Aviation Administration still is needed to make federal funds available, the agency already has indicated its support. “I think we have shown the world that we have our act together,” said Councilman Bill Rosendahl, who represents the airport area. “This is a significant step in making us a better neighbor and in improving the airport to make it safer and more friendly to passengers.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card The agreement puts into motion several immediate projects designed to improve safety at the airport, most notably a $241 million project by Sylmar-based firm Tutor-Saliba to move and widen the south runway. The deal also allows work to proceed on projects that had been designated as “green light” projects – those on which all parties agreed – as well as pay for sound mitigation of nearby homes and businesses and a community benefits program that will also provide jobs to people living in the area. Among other projects that will proceed are improvements to the Tom Bradley International Terminal, development of a new luggage system, expansion of FlyAway services around the county, development of a western concourse and a separate rental-car facility. A working group of officials will also be formed to develop plans to increase use of the Ontario and Palmdale airports, including transportation improvements. A key feature of the settlement will limit the number of annual passengers to 79.5 million by gradually reducing the number of gates at LAX from 163 to 153.

Deputy Joe McHughFine Gael TD for Donegal North East, Joe McHugh, has acknowledged Donegal has suffered in the financial crisis – but is now bouncing back.Mr McHugh was speaking as Ireland exits the bailout today, saying it will help to build confidence in Ireland, boost our growth potential and get the country back on a sustainable economic path. “The Irish people deserve huge credit for getting the country to where it is today, after five very difficult years of economic adjustments. When the failed economic policies of Fianna Fáil led us into a bailout at the end of 2010, our public finances were in disarray, the international markets had deserted us, and Ireland reputation in Europe was in tatters,” said Deputy McHugh. “Now, the economy is recovering, the public finances are under control, the banking sector has been restructured and, most importantly, jobs are being created.“In Donegal, we continue to face challenges such as the development of the A5 road and with it the journey time from Dublin city.“However, it’s important to acknowledge that there have been some positive achievements for the county, whether it’s the investment of €19 million in a sewerage scheme or today’s announcement that Donegal will receive the highest General Purpose Grants in 2014, a total of €22,720,760.“We continue to deal with both the economic legacy issues due to partition and also historical lack of investment by previous Governments in the North West, particularly when money was readily available in the last two decades. “For the last three years, the Fine Gael-led Government has been working towards exiting the bailout, which is an important milestone on our path to economic recovery.“This doesn’t mean that all of our problems are solved overnight, but it does mean that Ireland can return to being a normal Eurozone country, putting the boom bust policies of the past behind us.“Every step that has been taken by the Government in the last three years has had a jobs focus. This approach is paying dividends.“When this Government took office, 1,600 jobs were being lost every week, now we are in a situation where more than 1,000 net new jobs are being created every week. Over the last year, employment has increased by 58,000, and unemployment has dropped for the last 17 months in a row.“It is now essential that we build on this economic progress and continue on a sustainable growth path. We are ahead of target in terms of reducing the deficit, and our debt will begin to fall from next year. The economy is expected to grow for the fourth year in a row in 2014, and consumer sentiment is at a six year high and property prices are starting to recover. “The Government is determined to pursue post-bailout policies that will safeguard the stability of our public finances and boost economic growth. Next week, the Government will publish the Mid-Term Economic Strategy, which will set out how we plan to build on the recovery and enhance job creation in the years ahead.“I know the people of Donegal have had a difficult few years, but I am encountering a renewed confidence and sense of optimism in our ability as a country and a society to get back on our feet. Our economic recovery is down to the resilience and sacrifices of the Irish people, and I am confident that their efforts will be rewarded as we continue to create jobs and prosperity returns.”RENEWED CONFIDENCE IN DONEGAL AFTER BAILOUT EXIT – McHUGH was last modified: December 13th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalJoe McHughRENEWED CONFIDENCE IN DONEGAL AFTER BAILOUT EXIT – McHUGH

15 August 2006South Africa’s Financial Sector Charter has created a strong sense of ownership on the part of private institutions which are extending financial services to low-income groups in the country, says Finance Minister Trevor Manuel.Speaking on Monday at the launch of Australian bank Macquarie’s partnership with local bank First South, Manuel said invaluable lessons had been learned from the Financial Sector Charter process.“Firstly, through being a voluntary initiative, in many ways driven by the private sector, the Financial Sector Charter has created an incredible sense of ownership and accountability.“Secondly, the architects of the Financial Sector Charter have been vigilant in terms of crafting a framework that is as broad-based as possible.“The Financial Sector Charter has also been unlike any other charter in that it carves out an explicit development role in the economy for the financial sector,” Manuel said.Reaching outNot only did the charter commit tens of billions of rands to targeted investment in support of small and medium enterprises, low-income housing, resource-poor farmers and developmental infrastructure; it also set out explicit targets for ensuring that the sector broadened its reach by providing affordable and appropriate access to banking, insurance and savings products.Manuel highlighted the Mzansi bank account as a front-runner in this regard.“With over 3.3-million accounts opened since its inception in October 2004, the Mzansi account has silenced the sceptics who thought it not possible to sustainably service the low-income sector of the population.”The government has embarked on a number of initiatives, on its own and in partnership with financial institutions, to increase access to banking and savings services by low-income and other marginalised groups.Giving credit where it’s dueThe SA Micro Finance Apex Fund, launched by Trade and Industry Minister Mandisi Mphahlwa in 2005, extends micro-credit of up to R10 000 to entrepreneurs excluded from large financial institutions. The government will capitalise the fund by up to R120-million yearly.And the Micro Agricultural Finance Scheme of South Africa, administrated by the Land Bank on behalf of the Department of Agriculture, extends micro credit, savings, insurance and payment facilities to economically active poor rural households, small farmers and agri-businesses. The scheme provides loans of up to R100 000, payable over 12 months.Manuel said South Africa’s financial institutions had collectively committed themselves to provide R25-billion worth of funding for transformational infrastructure by the end of 2008.“The Financial Sector Charter recognises the need for the financial sector to dedicate funding to infrastructure projects in underdeveloped areas where communities have historically been denied equitable access to economic resources,” he said.Public-private partnershipsWith estimates for infrastructure spending over the next three years exceeding R370-billion, Manuel said the government had to look increasingly to public-private partnerships as a means of meeting its delivery targets.Thirteen public-private partnerships (PPPs) had been implemented to date under the auspices of the National Treasury’s PPP unit, while a further 48 PPP projects were registered with the unit as being in either feasibility study or procurement stage.The minister said the projected private investment in PPP projects in the country over the next three years was R13.8-billion.“We will continue to drive empowerment in every facet of PPPs because we know that these projects hold huge potential to grow new black businesses – both big and small – and to develop black management and skills,” Manuel said.Source: BuaNews
22 January 2010Argentinean national coach and former football star Diego Maradona has expressed his satisfaction with South Africa’s preparations for the 2010 Fifa World Cup, while dismissing security concerns and encouraging fans to come to the tournament.He was in the country to mainly to inspect the University of Pretoria’s High Performance Centre, where the Argentinean football team will be based.“They can say what they want, but we know we are coming to play the World Cup in a safe country,” said Maradona, speaking at Safa House in Johannesburg on Thursday. “I have seen that with my own eyes. Anything can happen in the world, but I have spent a week in South Africa and everything is very good and the people very friendly.“This will be a great World Cup with no doubts of security,” Maradona said. “I will tell my players that they only have to think of playing football when they come here and worry about nothing else.“I think that it is only fair for South Africa to host the World Cup because they have deserved it for a very long time,” the former Footballer of the Year and World Cup winner said.Special players, beautiful stadiumsOn Thursday, Maradona met 2010 Local Organising Committee (LOC) chief executive Danny Jordaan, SA Football Association president Kirsten Nematandani and CEO Leslie Sedibe, as well as senior LOC management.Jordaan said he felt there were many similarities between the 1986 Fifa World Cup winning team in which Maradona played and the one he is currently coaching.“I told the coach that in 1986 when Argentina left for the World Cup the people of Argentina did not think that team would bring back the cup. But that team had a special player and in the end they won the World Cup.“This year your team also has a very special player. They may not be among the favourites to win the World Cup this year but I think your team is going to surprise many people,” Jordaan said.Maradona and Jordaan exchanged signed national jerseys on the pitch at Soccer City.“They really did a great job on this stadium,” said Maradona of Soccer City which will host both the opening and closing games of the World Cup. “I have been to many stadiums before, but this is very big and so great. To be able to enter this stadium is so beautiful.“I feel inspired to play here but unfortunately my time has passed.”Source: BuaNews
