Guyana: Road improvement and rehabilitation

The East Bank Public Road (EBPR) provides the only link between the interior with its mining activities and hardwood forests, and the capital Georgetown. The increased traffic, and particularly of heavy vehicles has damaged the road and presents a safety hazard for the  more vulnerable road users, particularly in the many villages along the route. 

IMC/CEMCO provided expertise to address not only the rehabilitation of the existing pavement but, through specialist inputs, to enhance the safety of road users, especially the more vulnerable; control overweight vehicles; amend the laws of Guyana to support axle and vehicle weight control.
