Harbour Bridge receives full payment for damage to bridge structure
The Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation (DHBC) has announced that it is in receipt of a payment made on March 1, 2021, for the outstanding balance by Mr D Sookram, owner of the tug & barge (Rediston and Surtrans) that collided with the bridge on December 9, 2020.
The said tug and barge collided with the southern section of the Demerara Harbour Bridge High-Span (span# 30 to 32). Subsequently, an agreement was signed between the Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation and Mr. Deonarine Sookram with a payment plan which required him to make an initial payment upon signing and the balance in quarterly installments until full payment is made.
“The Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation would like to express thanks to Mr Deonarine Sookram for his commitment to fulfilling these obligations and bringing closure to this matter,” a statement from the DHBC noted Wednesday.
