THROUGH the Public Works Ministry’s Capital Works Programme, the government has expended some $24 million for the construction of bridges in the communities of Achiwuib and Awaruwaunau, Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo).

The execution of this significant project will significantly improve the lives of 597 residents of the Achiwuib Village, and some 1,919 residents of Awaruwaunau and surrounding areas.

Of the $24 million, some $14 million was expended for the rehabilitation of the Achiwuib Bridge that travels along the main access connecting to the village of Karaudarnau.

The substructure was fortified with reinforced concrete and timber decking to ensure the structure’s longevity.

The contractor of the project was Clyve King. The duration of the project was four months. Similarly, the Awaruwaunau Bridge, which was severely damaged, was rehabilitated at the cost of some $10 million.

The project was executed by Cyril King and was completed within two months. (DPI)
