[www.inewsguyana.com ] – The temporary bypasses to facilitate traffic flow at Miles 1 and 12 on the Lethem road- which is eroded- are completed, according to the Ministry of Public Infrastructure.
A press statement noted that engineers from the Ministry and V. Dalip Enterprise were able to complete the short-term structure on Saturday afternoon. Heavy duty vehicles can now ply the route.
Meanwhile, plans are afoot to build two bridges instead of culverts as part of the Ministry’s long term solution. The erosion occurred as a result of the high intensity torrential rainfall experienced over the past few weeks.
Meanwhile, the newly appointed Minister of Public Infrastructure, David Patterson has requested his Engineers to carry out a full assessment of the affected areas to determine permanent procedures that would prevent any re-occurrences in the future.
