President commits $25M for St Cuthbert’s Mission road

GUYANA - President Bharrat Jagdeo has committed $25M to building a road from the Linden Highway to St Cuthbert’s Mission to facilitate easier transporting of goods to the coast.

According to a Government Information Agency (GINA) press release the President made this proposal to residents on his second visit to the Mission located 50 miles up the Mahaica River. Residents greeted the proposal with loud cheers and suggested that the same method used to pave the access road to Laluni could be used.

“You need quick and reliable means of transporting your goods from here into the marketplace which is the coast and Georgetown,” Jagdeo said and suggested that a meeting be convened with the council, the villagers and the Ministry of Public Works to assess the available options. GINA said the president’s team including Amerindian Affairs, Education and Health ministers Pauline Sukhai, Shaik Baksh and Dr Bheri Ramsaran met with residents at the St Cuthbert’s Mission Primary School.
