Damaged Mora Bridge repaired

The Mora Bridge, located in the vicinity of Toka and Yakarinta villages in the North Rupununi Wetlands of Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) has been repaired, and is again usable following emergency works done on the substructure.
Repairs became necessary following major damage done to the bridge by a Brazilian truck laden with corn, which broke a beam and fell off the bridge while attempting to cross. Later, two other trucks caused more damage, and eventually rendered the bride impassable.

The Public Works Ministry awarded a $12M contract to Lumber King Enterprises, which began work on August 5.
The repairs entailed replacing all damaged beams and installing new deck planks and running boards.
