THE People’s National Congress Reform has expressed condolences on the death of Philip Anderson Desmond Allsopp on Wednesday, January 20, 2021.
Philip Allsopp, as a civil engineer, played key roles in advising, designing or overseeing works on several roadways and highways – including the Georgetown-Timehri; Soesdyke-Linden; Linden-Mabura; Mahaica-Rosignol and within the Mahaica-Mahaicony-Abary development project – and in the negotiations for the construction of the Guyana-Brazil international bridge and in talks for the Guyana-Suriname ferry.
Philip Allsopp was born on 8 April, 1926 in Charlestown, Georgetown. He attended Queen’s College, and after leaving school, joined the Public Works Department in colonial British Guiana.
