Meanwhile, $70M was assigned to the region for the construction and rehabilitation of roads within the Triumph, Paradise, Ann’s Grove, Mahaica, Soesdyke, Diamond and Herstelling villages.

The sum of $5.881B budgetary estimates for Region Four, Demerara Mahaica was approved in Parliament during the December 2017 Budget Debates.
