Guyana Water Incorpora-ted (GWI) spokesman Timothy Austin yesterday said the intermittent bad weather has delayed the repair of roads that were excavated during the rehabilitation of the sewer system.

He added that in addition to constant rainfall and flooding, there was also a shortage of asphalt but the situation has since been remedied.

When Stabroek News visited various roadways in Georgetown yesterday, some repair works were underway while the laying of sewer pipes was still being done at other areas.

GWI has said that it is working along with the Ministry of Public Works to ensure that road repairs are executed in accordance with the requirements of the contract and high standards of quality.

 

The company has also indicated that it is executing full measures to ensure that the contractors execute the works in compliance with the technical and environmental re-quirements of the contract to ensure the highest quality of the finished infrastructure.
