DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, July 04, 2018

Road upgrades to Charlotte Street in the vicinity of Wellington and Camp Streets, Georgetown began this morning. The project is being executed by the Special Projects Unit (SPU) of the Ministry of Public Infrastructure.

Ongoing road works at Charlotte Street.

Foreman attached to the SPU, Marlon McRae, told the Department of Public Information (DPI) that the scope of work includes scarifying, placement of crusher run on the critical sections, paving from Wellington to King Street and patching from Camp to Wellington Streets.

As long as there is good weather, the section from Wellington to King Street will be completed tomorrow, while work will begin from Camp Street to Wellington over the weekend.

“We’re doing that area over the weekend because we do not want to impede the traffic. This project was on the agenda for a long time but because of the amount of work we have some time now, we decided to get it done now,” McRae said.

These long-awaited upgrades were welcomed by commuters and drivers.

The SPU is currently working in Diamond.

The sum of $800Million and $1.2Billion was allocated respectively for urban and miscellaneous roadworks.
