Commuters, particularly school children, of Wismar now have the convenience of bus sheds when using public transportation.

Today Minister of Finance Winston Jordan commissioned one of three bus sheds at One Mile, Wismar, Region 10. The shelters, two at One Mile, Wismar and one at Amelia’s Ward were commitments made to the region during a previous outreach in September 2017, by the Minister.

Minister Jordan encouraged the residents to maintain the facilities. “I would like to urge the community to care this facility. Monies that have been used to help build this is part of your tax dollars and therefore you ought to respect it down the road,” the Minister said.

Residents were also the recipients of street lights and sport gears, mostly footballs. Gregory Rodrigues welcomed the donations and observed that it has “been some time” since interest was shown in the community.

Andre Irving noted that the street lighting will be very helpful to children who attend after-school lessons. “The corner is pretty dark so it will give some light there. It means a great lot to the community we want to thank the minister,” he said.

Member of Parliament, Jermaine Figueira, explained that the Region has undertaken a lighting project in all communities. “The minister would have contributed significant (and it) has greatly helped the community,” he said.
