GUYANA-THE SUN IS SHINING- POEMS – By Dmitri Allicock

GUYANA-THE SUN IS SHINING – POEMS

By Dmitri Allicock

sun is shining

HOME OF HEART

It has been years since I flew the nest
But my humble home I like the best
Memories of family closeness I feel again
Precious roots that still crowds my brain
Time and many years since I bid farewell
Neighbors and friends I remember well
Home, where the sun still shines so bright
That still lives in my heart and forever right

Guyana:Reducing Traffic Congestion – commentary

REDUCING TRAFFIC

November 25, 2014 | By | Features / Columnists, Peeping Tom

As promised last week, I propose in this column to address the alternatives that are available to the government to reduce the parking problems in the city.
The approach of the government to this land many other problems has been to attempt to satisfy the demand for parking. This is an untenable approach towards the problem of parking in the city because it is impossible in such a cramped city to meet the present parking needs, much less to be able to satisfy future demand.

Vehicle traffic within the city has grown beyond the capacity of the city to absorb this volume of traffic. The city is not expanding. It remains a small city and instead of catering for traffic and zoning certain areas, there has been haphazard development, a situation compounded by bus and car parks being located in the heart of the city.

Georgetown: Covering over the City’s canals is unworkable + video

Plan to cover Georgetown’s Dutch canals to use as parking lots

COVERING OVER THE CITY’S CANALS IS UNWORKABLE

November 17, 2014 | By KNews | Columnists: Peeping Tom

The plan to cover over some of the main canals in the city so as cater for additional parking should be reconsidered. The covering over of the canals will not solve the parking problems of the city; there are also far better alternatives available.

In this column, I will provide some reasons why I believe this plan to roof the canals of the city should be abandoned. I will also in my column next week indicate alternative measures which may be considered to help control traffic and parking in the city since the two are inherently related. Continue reading
