-submissions open until December 4
Approximately 50 international companies have responded to Government’s invitation for submissions of Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the design-build of the new Demerara Harbour Bridge.
Minister of Public Works, Juan Edghill made this disclosure on Friday at the installation of the Board of Directors for the Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation.
“There will be some technical meetings and companies are coming into the country to do inspections and to do their own studies and to examine and help to facilitate their proposals,” Minister Edghill said.
The Minister said companies were said to have complied with filing the necessary documentation. Other interested companies have until December 4 to submit their EOI.
“I would want to continue to invite and ask the world and some of the greatest bridge builders of the world, to participate in Guyana’s development by expressing their interests. We want the best. Guyana deserves the best,” he said.
The new four-lane, high-span, fixed bridge from Nandy Park, East Bank Demerara (EBD) to La Grange, West Bank Demerara (WBD), will serve thousands of persons who live and traverse Regions Three and Four.
Government invited EOI for the new bridge back in September. The current bridge began operations in 1978.
