Traffic resumes on Lethem Trail after road collapsed
Hours after a section of the Lethem trail collapsed, traffic resumed after temporary works were done. A statement from the Ministry of Public Works noted that the section of the road that washed away is within the vicinity of Surama village, located in the North Rupununi.
“Temporary work has already been done and more permanent work is continuing,” Minister of Public Works Juan Edghill told the News Room.
Edghill said the road washed away as a result of flooding in the region over the past weeks.
The News Room understands that this section of the road is routinely maintained by the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC).
