Ambulance caught in arch traffic jam

This ambulance with a sick patient travelling from the Industry Health Centre to the Georgetown Public Hospital was among the hundreds of vehicles caught in the gridlock yesterday as a result of the erection of an arch at Cummings Lodge. One of the technicians on board told Stabroek News that they were stuck in traffic for over an hour. Staff from the health centre had to plead with drivers to pull into the corner to allow the ambulance to move ahead. This photo was taken three streets away from the health centre.
