The Demerara Harbour Bridge replacement project hit a milestone, reaching 33% completion. 

China Railway Construction (Caribbean) Co. Limited reported progress with 378 workers across two sites: Peter’s Hall on East Bank Demerara and La Grange on West Bank Demerara. 

Concrete pouring for five piles on the east side is done; pouring on the west side starts soon, the Ministry of Public Works reported.

The project identified areas for connecting roads at the eastern landing site, linking to Heroes Highway and a highway under construction connecting Eccles and Ogle. These roads are set to improve travel between the West Bank of Demerara, the East Coast of Demerara, and the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.

The joint venture China Railway Construction Corporation (International) will be delivering a four-lane, high-span, cable-stayed bridge connecting Nandy Park on the East Bank to La Grange on the West Bank. This upgrade from the aging Demerara Harbour Bridge aims to support Guyana’s oil and gas sector, especially projects on the West Bank and West Coast of Demerara.

The new bridge’s completion is expected to ease traffic congestion between Regions 3 and 4, addressing long-standing travel issues while enhancing connectivity and fostering economic growth in Guyana.
