Diamond pedestrian crossing contract awarded

A contract for US$364,727 for an overhead pedestrian crossing at Diamond, East Bank Demerara has been awarded to S Jagmohan Hardware Supplies and Construction Services.

This was disclosed yesterday by the Ministry of the Presidency.

The Ministry also disclosed that two new 4×4 vehicles for the Canawaima Ferry Service had been procured from Beharry Automotive Limited at a total cost of $19.4m.

These contracts were noted by Cabinet at its April 18 meeting, the ministry said. The use of the word `noted’ suggests that Cabinet is no longer providing no-objections to the award of contracts now that the Public Procurement Commission is in place.
