The Guyana Water Inc’s (GWI) Georgetown Sanita-tion Improvement Programme (GSIP) has now begun work at the Princes Street and Louisa Row junction.
According to a press release from GWI, it started the laying of pipes at that junction yesterday and as a result there will be “minor traffic diversion, breaking of roads and noise associated with the use of heavy equipment”.
The release quoted GWI Project Manager Orin Browne as saying that “Pipes will be installed along Louisa Row towards the end of Cemetery Road and Sussex Street…” and “sewer pipes will also be laid along Sussex Street going west to the Sussex and Charles [streets] junction.”
The utility appealed to all customers for their patience during the execution of the GSIP. It noted that the programme will result in significantly minimising sewage overflows and other problems associated with the sanitation system.
GWI also expressed gratitude to customers of Georgetown for their continued partnership and apologised for any inconvenience experienced.
The US$10,000,000 GSIP, through which sewerage pump stations are being upgraded and delivery mains installed, is a Government of Guyana and Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) programme.
