During the opening of bids at the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board (NPTAB), Ministry of Finance, Main Street, Georgetown yesterday, financial proposals were submitted for the consultancy of a feasibility study for the construction of a bridge across the Demerara River at Wismar, Region 10 (Upper Demerara/Upper Berbice).
In recent months, there have been calls by residents of the mining town for the relevant authorities to construct a double-lane bridge across the river. The existing single-lane bridge which connects Mackenzie to Wismar is in a deplorable state and is currently operating under a manual traffic system.
According to the Mayor of Linden Carwyn Holland, the influx of motor vehicles in Linden results in the bridge experiencing heavy flows of traffic, especially during the peak periods. He added that because of the age of the bridge, maintenance is very costly.
The Mayor said that he is unaware of the plans for the existing bridge. However, as a citizen of Linden, he opined that the new bridge will serve residents better if it was constructed in the proximity of Christianburg.
He pointed out that the town welcomes the initiative since there are a great number of Administrative Regions connected to Linden coupled with the seeming increase in activities.
The following table contains the names of organisations that have signaled their intention to carry out the feasibility study along with their proposed prices.
