J’can companies among bidders for US$20M four-lane extension
Two Jamaican companies have been listed among the entities bidding for the US$20M four-lane extension road project on the East Bank of Demerara, from Providence to Diamond.
The demanding project has also seen local companies teaming up. These include a combination of General Earth Movers Limited and Geico Construction Company Limited, as well as R. Bassoo and Sons with D&J Civil Works.
This project is expected to run for a period of 18 months with funding which was sourced by the Guyana Government from the Inter-American Development Bank.
Works on the additional lanes will include medians, a walkway, bicycle path and wherever possible, parking.
Already, works have begun on another section of the East Bank Demerara thoroughfare, from the Timheri Police Station to the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.
These are all part of the efforts to transform the entire East Bank Demerara roadway into a four-lane highway, from Georgetown to Timehri. To date, works have been successfully completed from Houston to Providence. The next phase of this project will see extension works from Grove to Timehri.
