“Basically we are explaining to them what their rights are. There is a national policy when it comes to right-of-way aquisitions. To protect the public we can only aquire the right-of-way needed for the construction, maintenance of the roadway, which is to help protect us from abusing the public at large,” said Dirar Ahmad the Engineering Consultant Review Head.

All comments about the project are due by July 26, 2018.
