Golden Fleece Estate gets $30M asphaltic road

Some 800 residents of Golden Fleece Estate in the Pomeroon-Supenaam (Region Two) are now able to traverse with ease following the completion of a $30 million, 600-metre-long asphaltic access road.

The road works, which lasted some six months, was executed by the Ministry of Public Works.

Speaking with DPI, Regional Vice-Chairman, Humace Oudit said residents are thankful for the project as the road has been in a deplorable condition for some time.
