The Upper Corentyne, Central Corentyne and Berbice Chambers of Commerce have expressed “great disappointment and strong disapproval” of the treatment meted out to them by the Berbice Bridge Company.
The three Chambers of Commerce said that on Tuesday last they sent a joint letter to the Bridge Company seeking a meeting on the toll structure and other important issues pertaining to the smooth operations of the Bridge, but they were left waiting.
After many reminders from the Chambers, the Bridge Company set the date for yesterday, at 09:30 hrs, at the Berbice Chamber of Commerce’s office in New Amsterdam.
However, at around 09:15 hrs yesterday, with over twenty members from Crabwood Creek to New Amsterdam waiting for the delegation from the Bridge Company to arrive, a call was received from a Berbice Bridge Official in Georgetown to postpone the meeting to tomorrow.
“The members present were very upset and disappointed since we had to put off prior engagements to attend the meeting at the date and time set by the Bridge Company,” the businessmen stated.
The Chambers are hoping that the meeting will come off this time.
The Berbice Chamber of Commerce and Development Association recently called on the Berbice Bridge Company to review the toll fares for certain categories of vehicles crossing the Berbice Bridge.
That Chamber said the proposed freight charges for goods should be reviewed or else it will result in the costs of goods coming from and going to Georgetown being increased.
