Homes to be knocked down to make way for 4-lane LPH

Government is making way to expand the Linford Pierson Highway to four lanes, and that means structures in its path will be torn down.

Nearby resident Lorna Bush showed Cayman 27 a house near hers that is slated for demolition.

She said she understands that one can’t stand in the way of progress, but she is calling on government to ensure that quality components, like the storm-grade windows, are salvaged before the home is knocked down.

“There’s probably a couple hundred thousand dollars worth of materials that could be reused. Windows, doors, interior doors, cabinetry, exterior doors, even parts of this roof can be taken off,” said Ms. Bush.

She said she’s also concerned about what will happen with mango and breadfruit trees on the property.

The ministry of infrastructure confirmed the property has been acquired and is being evaluated for salvageable materials.
