BRAGSA TO EMPLOY OVER 5000 PERSONS FOR ROAD CLEANING PROGRAMME

The annual Christmas Road Cleaning Programme conducted by the Roads, Buildings and General Services Authority (BRAGSA) is scheduled to commence on Friday December 4, 2020.

The 7-day programme will see the employment of 5,405 persons. These will include 450 gangs, and 905 Jobbers. In addition, over 100 Truckers will be employed.

Communications Officer of BRAGSA, Mr. Rohan Cupid says the gangs will be out from 7am in every district across St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

He says emphasis will be placed on the cleaning of drains, following the heavy rains in recent weeks.

Mr. Cupid says this is being done as part of BRAGSA’s continued effort in the fight against Dengue Fever in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

In October, BRAGSA launched an initiative dubbed the “Fight Against Dengue Fever” which also took the form of a road cleaning programme.

This year’s Christmas Road Cleaning Programme will be carried out at a cost of 2.5 million EC dollars.
