The Ministry of Agriculture is presiding over three projects, for which contracts were awarded.
KB&B was awarded a $17,709,720 contract to do repairs to sections of the Ruby Main Road, Ruby Back Area, East Bank Essequibo, Region Three.
Mohammad Fawaaz Bacchus Construction and Transportation Services was awarded a $43,735,800 contract for the upgrading of Kent Dam Road, Parika Back Area, East Bank Essequibo, Region Three.
Shereaz Bacchus General Contractor was awarded a $110,214,000 contract to rehabilitate the Onverwagt Access Road Extension, West Coast Berbice, Region Five.
Cabinet also noted that the road extension will include an upgrade 1.8km of access from mud dam and crusher run to an asphaltic concrete surface. The width of the road is 6m with a crusher run base and white sand sub-base and is designed to cater for the heavy loads associated with rice cultivation and rural farming.
It is expected that as a result, rice and cattle farmers will have better access to approximately 40,000 acres of rice land and 10,000 head of cattle, when this project comes to fruition. This is also expected to reduce the cost of production and transportation during harvesting and land preparation, and the 125 residents living on the left and right bank of the Abary River are expecting better access to traverse the area.
The Ministry of Public Infrastructure is presiding over one project, for which one contract was awarded. That is the award of $57,188,120 to Bardon Construction Services for the construction of a tarmac for the market and parking lot at Diamond, East Bank Demerara, Region Four.
