The Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) continues to contribute towards the beautification of hinterland areas across the country. In this regard, it pleases the MNR to announce that significant beautification works at the Brian Sucre Junction in the Mahdia area has been completed.

With the assistance of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC), the Ministry has been able to provide the area with signage, lights, and fencing, therefore improving visibility and overall aesthetics of the area.

The Brian Sucre Junction, is known to be a popular resting spot for hinterland travelers and is named after a former Commissioner of the GGMC.

The MNR is therefore pleased that it has able to complete this project, a request by the residents of Mahdia and hinterland travelers. Further, gratitude is extended to the GGMC and the several individuals who played a meaningful role in bringing this project to completion.

Overtime, the Ministry has been able to give support to over fifteen areas through the provision of bins, streetlights, seedlings and fruit trees, and garden and cleaning tools. This has promoted the overall green agenda of the Government. Significant achievements in this regard are the restoration of the Cashew Grove Park in Lethem and the Esplanade Park in New Amsterdam, the Golden Grove clean-up efforts, and the cleaning of Bartica and Port Kaituma Waterfronts.

The MNR remains committed to the development of all areas whether through infrastructural development or beautification, and will continue to contribute towards ensuring that all Guyanese experience the good life the Government of Guyana offers.
