Moleson Creek bridge for August completion

The 105 feet bridge under construction at Moleson Creek, Region Six is estimated to be completed by August 2014 and will enable an easier flow of traffic, according to Sherod Parkinson – a Ministry of Public Works’ Engineer overseeing the project.

A release from the Ministry of Works said that a site visit on Monday, June 23, 2014 allowed Ministry officials to see the progress of the $60M project.

According to Parkinson, the contractor B & J Civil Works has completed casting the supporting beams and columns, and is awaiting the importation of longitudinal beams.

“We expect the beams to be here in another two weeks or so in Guyana. After that, the contractor just has to put the beams in place and cast the concrete deck,’ the ministry’s engineer said.

In the meantime, vehicles and motorists can access the area via a bypass.

The release said that the bridge is around two miles from the Moleson Creek Stelling – a heavily used area where a ferry plies the Guyana/Suriname route.
