A few days ago, a new gravel driveway was put in place to clear Diy’s roadways of debris and debris-laden stones.
A new concrete pad and concrete sidewalk was also installed.
But the main goal is to clear debris from the gravel driveway.
Diy residents have been voicing their concerns about the gravel road since it opened on December 6, 2016.
“It’s just not good for the environment, and it’s not good to the people that live here,” said one resident, who wished to remain anonymous.
“I can’t see how we can use that gravel driveway if it’s full of debris.
I think it should be cleaned up.”
Diy residents are concerned about the road’s impact on the ground, which is currently contaminated with gravel from the road and from the surrounding areas.
Diya resident, Ali al-Shahidi, told Al Jazeera that it is not just gravel from Diy that is contaminating the road.
“The pollution is affecting the ground here, but the pollution is also impacting the environment,” he said.
A lot of the dirt is from the nearby area of al-Mawlana, which sits at the intersection of Diy and the Aida Highway.
It is also the site of a recent development that was supposed to improve the area’s roads.
The development was initially supposed to include a bridge over the Aydah Highway.
However, the project has been postponed for lack of funding, and the road has since been replaced with a new road.
However, there are still concerns about Diya’s gravel road.
Diyah residents also expressed concern about the use of cement, which can be harmful to the ground and the surrounding environment.
“It’s not the best way to use cement,” said a Diy resident, explaining that cement is not only used in the cement industry, but is also used in construction projects.
“You can’t use cement in Diy unless it’s in the area where the roads are.”
