Geometric improvements will be carried out on the East Coast Railway Embankment Road come September for smoother traffic flow.
This was revealed to the Department of Public Information (DPI) by the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, Senior Project Engineer Kester Hinds.
Hinds said that these road enhancements will reduce traffic congestion in the vicinity of the National Aquatic Centre, the Giftland Mall and the CARICOM Secretariat (between Liliendaal and Cummings Lodge).
Some $56.5M has been assigned for the project which will see the construction of two east bound lanes, Hinds said. This expansion will facilitate the smoother flow of traffic for persons living on the East Coast Demerara and persons visiting the mall. Shoulder lanes to accommodate bus stops will also be built.
