– a total inconvenience to people and vehicles
More than 1,500 persons who reside in Good Hope, East Coast Demerara (E.C.D) are currently inconvenienced by contractors working on a main access bridge, commonly referred to as the “Kissoon Bridge”. This bridge was damaged and a contractor had tendered to repair it.
According to the residents, many of them are unhappy since their regular route cannot be accessed due to repair works that are now stalled and “left off”. Vehicles cannot cross the bridge, therefore many of them either have to drive all the way around the village and burn unnecessary fuel or park their vehicles on the Railway Embankment.
One angry resident said that this is the fourth week since construction commenced on the bridge. He said that he is upset that the contractors have only worked nine days and the type of work they are required to do would only require 10 days.
The resident stated that he has seen it with his own eyes and he too, was once a contractor, so he knows about the necessary works that need to be completed.
Some villagers explained that when the work “stalled” and they questioned the contractors, they were told that they were experiencing “money problems” and as such; could not finish the job.
On another occasion, they were told that the contractors “did not have materials to work with”.
When Kaieteur News visited the site yesterday, the bridge was in a deplorable state. A resident from the area stated that the contractors were “Mr. Cush” from Beterverwagting and “Mr. De Souza” from Annandale, East Coast Demerara.
An alternate bridge being utilized by persons who wish to get across from one part to another is almost diminished, and when it rains the route cannot be used.
