Residents of the São José 1 district, located in the Manaus East region, were surprised on Wednesday (18) with the painting of the acronym BRT in the front of their houses, made by de City Infrastructure Secretariat (Seminf) agents, informed the D24 AM website.
According to the residents, the agents painted the numbers on the houses without informing the reason for that, generating doubts about what it meant. Seminf informed, through the press assistance, that the marking of the houses starts the beginning of the procedures for the installation of the public transportation 'Bus Rapid Transit' (BRT).
The trader Altariza Pedrosa, 50, lives at Rua Janauacá for 26 years and said she was surprised with the painting. According to the resident, her mother is still in shock and is not able to talk because of what happened. "My mother is old, I think they should have more respect and inform us before doing what they did", she stated.
