Indian company working on design for East Bank/East Coast Road Project
An Indian Public Sector company, RITES Ltd. has been contracted to provide Consultancy Services for the Design of the East Bank – East Coast Road Linkage Project.
The Ministry of Public Infrastructure in a statement on Monday said Topographic surveys are scheduled along the Ogle Airport Road, Aubrey Barker Road, Haags Bosch Road, Mocha Arcadia Road and the Diamond Access Road.
As such, it is urging occupants along these corridors to cooperate with the surveying team during the execution of these works.
The road which will link the East Bank to the East Coast (Diamond to Ogle), will serve to reduce congestion and traffic delays by providing commuters with an alternative route.
This will also alleviate traffic congestion within Georgetown as desirous persons will now be able to circumvent the City, the Ministry said. The design will also be integrated with existing roads which will allow commuters improved connectivity into the City and along the East Bank and East Coast of Demerara.
The duration of the consultancy is 10 months at the cost of US$1.321M.
