GWI Cemetery Road Project nearing completion

The Guyana Water Incorporated’s three-month Cemetery Project is nearing completion with all 940 meters of new transmission mains installed and final interconnection works done on Wednesday.
Road reinstatement works have already begun within the project area of Square of the Revolution to Cemetery Road along Chapel Street, Princess Street and Cemetery Road, Georgetown. According to GWI, all damages to property will also be reinstated by the utility.
The project is being funded by the Government to the tune of $200M and executed by S. Jagmohan Hardware Supplies and Construction Services. Works commenced in early October and will be completed on schedule.
This forms part of the efforts by GWI to replace the aged pipelines in the capital city which are as old as 100 years.
Aged pipelines have also been replaced on Sheriff Street, Mandela Avenue and Vlissengen Road between Shelterbelt and Lamaha Street, Kitty.
The upgraded Georgetown network would allow the company to create zones among communities in Georgetown, which would allow for the isolation of disruptions, as opposed to shutting down the entire city to fix one main.
