Plaisance tower construction controversy takes another turn – 10th Apr 2013
The Plaisance tower construction controversy took another turn on, as workers attached to the company erecting the towers for the Government, turned up and towed away the piles that were being stored at the playground in preparation of the tower construction.
The Government had identified the Plaisance playground for the construction of one of 55 E- governance towers which when completed, is expected to improve internet access and speed up the Government’s e-governance programme.
One resident said that the community welcomes the move to take the materials away.
On Sunday, angry residents had refused to buy the explanations of Junior Finance Minister Juan Edghill of why the Tower had to be erected at the only playground in the Community. They complained about lack of consultation on the proposed erection. Edghill said that The Administration will continue to engage the residents in order to get the matter resolved.
This Newscast understands that the materials have been diverted to the site identified at LBI, where construction is expected to begin shortly.
