The former coalition government’s plan to build the new Demerara river bridge from Houston was a major mistake. Thankfully they were removed by the people of Guyana. The new PPP government, in what it seems is a decision solely by the current President, Dr. Irfaan Ali, plans to build the bridge in the Peters Hall area slightly south of the current bridge. By way of this letter, I ask that Dr. Ali change this decision and not build the new bridge there.
Any new bridge across the Demerara river must be built further south somewhere in the Grove or Friendship area. Building a high rise bridge in the Peters Hall area will result in a multitude of problems:
1. Major disruption in traffic in an area where traffic is already chaotic
2. Major environmental dust and other issues to residence in the area for the rest of their lives during construction and then by traffic
3. Major damages to hundreds of residential homes in the area since extensive pile driving will be required to build a high rise bridge.
4. Major waste of scare country resources to build such a structure on this threatened part of the coastland.
I strongly recommend that the Irfaan Ali government build the bridge in the Grove/ Friendship area which is further south
A. It is at a higher elevation
B. It provides the infrastructure to develop that part of the country which can be followed up by a highway to the Essequibo river and then eventually a bridge across the Essequibo river at a point that is not wide like the mouth where Parika is located.
President Ali, please consider this request. I encourage other citizens to voice their views on the location of bridge.
