Affiance village benefits from $9M road repairs

-1,500 residents to benefit

Approximately 1,500 residents of Affiance village, Pomeroon-Supenaam (Region Two) can now traverse easily on their newly rehabilitated $9 million asphalt road.

The works, which started earlier this month, will also benefit the residents of the Taymouth Manor, which is adjacent to Affiance.

Regional Vice-Chairman, Mr. Humace Oudit told DPI the repairs were a rollover project from years ago.

“Every year for the last four years, just before the National Budget, this road was measured and budgeted for, but the project never started. So, this year, the regional administration decided to undertake these works and we were lucky to have it done,” he said.

The beneficiaries welcomed the rehabilitation as the road was severely dilapidated.

Currently, it is the only asphaltic road completed in the region this year.  However, the regional administration is also undertaking minor road repairs across the region.

Residents from the Suddie Housing Scheme, Anna Regina, Golden Fleece Estate, Perseverance Estate, Zorg, Affiance, Lima Housing Scheme and Red Lock had been calling upon the regional administration since 2016 to execute maintenance works on their access roads and bridges.
