The Cane Garden Leguan Project has seen some 750 meters of Rip Rap completed to date
and works are expected to end by December.
Albert James, Chairman of the Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) of the Enterprise/Leguan area, said the Project started at a slow pace but has made significant strides so far. “Initially, the Contractor was progressing slowly on the Project but today the residents are happier and would like to see the completion of the work in a timely manner”.
Some residents have expressed their gratitude to the Government with the improvement on the land since the Project started. Mr. Sheik Ayube said that farming is made easier now that flooding does not occur.
“The water has eased tremendously and we can now have access to the land without worrying about the water coming in, we would like to thank the Ministry of Works for assisting us in this regard”.
Another resident, Mr. Lachhman Dwarkha, said the Contractor on the Project deserves a medal for the work done so far. “We are very pleased and satisfied with the work completed to date, and the Contractor truly deserves to be rewarded for satisfactory work, we now have dry land to work on and thanks to the Government of Guyana for their input”.
Meanwhile, Project Engineer, Dennis Ramsingh, approximately 1,000 meters of Sea Defence was subjected to severe erosion which resulted in the loss of all the mangroves within this stretch, therefore, the earthen embankment was fully exposed to the oceans.
Mr. Ramsingh further reiterated that all phases of the Project are expected to be completed in December.
