After being closed for more than two months to facilitate rehabilitation works, the Liliendaal Bridge located on the East Coast of Demerara is now opened to traffic.
The media was informed that the last of the restoration process concluded on Monday evening.
An assessment conducted on the bridge a few months ago revealed signs of imminent failure as one of the panels had detached, resulting in an unstable structure.
As such, the rehabilitation of the Liliendaal Bridge was carried out based on recommendations from the Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation (DHBC) Inspection Team and engineers attached to the Ministry.
The $89 million project was undertaken by H Nauth & Sons Civil Engineering Contractors.
