Errol Cush has said that his construction company did not participate in the construction of the bridge at Good Hope; East Coast Demerara.
This issue was highlighted on the front page of the Saturday edition of Kaieteur News.
It was previously reported that Mr. Cush and Mr. De Souza partnered in the construction of the bridge where the contractors have since stalled the works.
Cush is contending that his dragline was rented by the contractor to effect work at the site. He further explained that some of his employees were granted leave to “lend their expertise” towards the project.
Cush emphasised that the project had no administrative connection to Errol Cush Construction Service other than the payment for a rented piece of equipment —the dragline.
It was reported that more than 1,500 persons residing at Good Hope, East Coast Demerara, are currently being inconvenienced by contractors working on a main access bridge, commonly referred to as the ‘Kissoon Bridge’.
According to residents, the bridge was damaged and a contractor had tendered to repair it.
The stall in the completion of repairs has been a nuisance to many of the residing persons in Good Hope. 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.
According to some villagers, after the stalled project, the people inquired from contractors about the completion and were told that they (the contractors) were experiencing “money problems” and as such; could not finish the job.
On another occasion, villagers were told that the contractors “did not have enough materials to work with”.
An alternate bridge being utilised by persons who wish to get across is also diminished. Residents claim that when it rains this route cannot be used
