Georgetown: Residents of more than twenty-seven (27) villages along Belfield to Rosignol can look forward to improved road access and connectivity as the Ministry of Public Infrastructure (MOPI) moves to start a technical and economic feasibility study for the redesign of the road network
The Government of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana has received a Grant of Kuwaiti Dinars (KD) 500,000 from the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development to undertake a Technical and Economic Feasibility Study for the Redesign of the Belfield to Rosignol Road Network.
The study which will be carried out by MOPI seeks to solve the issues of deteriorating roads, poor drainage and road safety of Belfield to Rosignol. The redesign of the network will ensure enhanced capacity of the roads, srengthen trade and economic development and facilitate new and improved interactions among farming communities. It will also reduce delays and increase user satisfaction.
The Fund, one of Guyana’s development partners, has over the years assisted Government to undertake feasibility studies and designs for the upgrade of road networks within the country. A similar project was undertaken in 2011 for the upgrade of the Better Hope to Belfield road network.
