Harbour Bridge waives toll to allow stranded passengers to cross faster
The Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation has waived the toll for vehicles crossing the bridge up to 7pm on Wednesday.
According to a statement from the Department of Public Information (DPI), this decision was taken “to ensure stranded passengers can utilise the bridge faster.”
Crossing at the bridge was stopped earlier after a tug and barge, transporting bauxite, collided with the bridge, pushing it out of line.
The bridge has since reopened to light traffic.
Trucks and other heavy vehicles will be advised when they will be able to use the bridge.
Minister of Home Affairs, Robeson Benn is on-site in support of the Minister of Public Works, Bishop Juan Edghill, DHB Board Chairman Mr. Ravi Ramcharitar, General Manager Mr. Rawlston Adams and the technical staff trying to remedy the situation.
