Harbour bridge to be closed for 4 hours today

first_imgConcerns raised by citizens regarding tonight’s four-hour closure of the Demerara Harbour Bridge (DHB) are centred on the weekend’s increased activities relative to entertainment gatherings in Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara), but the DHBC has said those timings are final and the bridge will be subjected to closure and maintenance during that period of time.General Manager of the Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation (DHBC), RawlstonDemerara Harbour BridgeAdams, on Friday noted he is aware that commuters who expect to utilize the bridge during that time would be inconvenienced by the works, but the company is expected to work on a schedule which is not influenced by any public matter.“Those works will inconvenience them because [of] the timing. We do apologise for that, but unfortunately we don’t schedule our works around entertainment activities; (our works are) based on what needs to be done,” he stated.Commuters are being advised to traverse the bridge before its closure, to avoid any disruption in their scheduled activities.“We do apologise to those people, and we tell them to go over (the bridge) early, they’ll have more time to have more fun. So I’m hoping that they get over early. We’re finishing at two, so if they’re finished by then, we’ll just be finished for them to come over back,” he said, referring to those who would be travelling to the West Coast for planned entertainment activities.The bridge is expected to be closed for four hours, from 22:00h to 02:00h Saturday morning, for emergency maintenance works.last_img
