Another section of the Corentyne highway was recently lit up as the Ministry of Public Infrastructure (MPI) continues the installation of street lights along the thoroughfare.
Recently lit up was the section of the public road from Borlam Turn to Fyrish Road. Residents told Stabroek News that the lights were switched on New Year’s Day. They have expressed gratitude to the government since they have been requesting road lights for years.
The project, which is being undertaken by the ministry’s Traffic, Safety and Maintenance department, said the installation of street lights along the Corentyne highway began in 2016. The project is being done in phases. Throughout 2017, the No.19 road from Seawell to Bohemia and Adventure to Tarlorgie Farm have been lit up. Other villages between Number 35 and Moleson Creek have also benefitted from street lights…..
