Work to Begin On Bailey Bridge in Kintyre

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail All is in place for work to begin on the construction of a two-lane Bailey bridge in Kintyre, St. Andrew, which will provide easier access for residents to the Corporate Area, whenever it rains. Corporate Communications Manager at the National Works Agency (NWA), Stephen Shaw, stated that: “We have everything in place, the design is complete, the contractor has been identified, and funding is in place. ” “All the technical drawings have been given to the contractor and it is now for him to execute the works and we expect that as soon as the weather allows, the contractor will be there to commence his part of the activity,”  he added. Mr. Shaw was responding to a question during a post Hurricane Sandy media briefing at the Office of the Prime Minister yesterday (October 25), on the state of the bridge, which is to replace the ford which currently provides vehicular access to the community. With the passage of Hurricane Sandy on October 24, vehicular access was cut off from the community to the Corporate Area, as the Hope River made the ford impassable.

End of eviction ban to unleash 14,000 warrants in NY

first_imgTagsAndrew CuomoCoronaviruseviction Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink A law enacted at the end of July allows tenants to forestall evictions if they have suffered Covid-related financial distress, but these 14,000 cases predate the pandemic, according to the Legal Aid Society.The legal services provider estimates an additional 200,000 rentals in New York City are not eligible for the law’s protection.From January to March last year, 5,393 evictions were executed across the city’s roughly 2.2 million rental units, data shows. The 14,000 active eviction warrants suggest that evictions in 2020 could far outpace last year’s numbers, which legal service providers argue is a threat to public health.“Wednesday is the worst possible drop-dead date,” said Judith Goldiner, an attorney at the Legal Aid Society.Goldiner also pointed out that Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Vermont have eviction moratoriums that last longer than New York’s. In Philadelphia, a ban on evictions for all renters in the city was extended to March 2021.“It’s honestly pretty shocking that every neighboring state has a longer eviction moratorium than we do,” said Goldiner. “I thought we were coordinating.”President Donald Trump has also responded — verbally, at least — to the prospect of mass evictions as state and local bans expire. At a press briefing yesterday, Trump said he would stop evictions if Congress did not. Governor Andrew Cuomo (iStock; Cuomo by Stefani Reynolds/Getty Images)With one of New York’s eviction moratoriums set to expire tomorrow, some 14,000 active eviction warrants are poised to move forward, legal services providers warn.The cases were brought prior to the state’s suspending evictions early in the pandemic. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has since extended but narrowed the moratorium. The latest 30-day extension of the eviction and foreclosure ban will lapse Wednesday night, Aug. 5.Read moreConfusing guidance frustrates landlord and tenant attorneysNY eviction filings can start, but not finishCourt rules eviction guidance unconstitutionallast_img read more

Lucescu: ‘Costa has Mbappe quality’

first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: Juventus winger Douglas Costa “has no reason to envy Kylian Mbappe”, according to former Shakhtar Donetsk boss Mircea Lucescu. Costa scored a stoppage-time winner for Juve against Lokomotiv Moscow in style midweek, dribbling past three defenders, completing a give-and-go and beating another two men before nutmegging the goalkeeper. After watching that goal, Lucescu likened the 29-year-old in terms of ability to Mbappe, who is considered the world’s best player under the age of 21. “Douglas Costa, in terms of quality, has no reason to envy Mbappe at PSG,” he told Tuttosport. “The other day he scored a beautiful goal in the Champions League, but he’s got the quality to score goals like that every game. “Trust me, I know,” added the 74-year-old, who brought the Brazilian to Europe during his successful tenure at Shakhtar. Costa has netted just eight times in three seasons with the Bianconeri, although he did provide 12 assists in Serie A during his first campaign. “He’s a very generous player, he prefers to make an assist than score himself.”last_img read more
