“Once the traffic will go through there, you have that thoroughfare that you could now dig up, take out all the slab, re-lay it, and build it into a road that can carry the tonnage – the heavy trucks. So, the entire road will be upgraded all the way to the (Cheddi Jagan International Airport),” Edghill explained.
“The intent of that road is to connect Ogle with Timehri. Silica City will (also) benefit from that,” Edghill said, with Silica City touted as becoming Guyana’s first smart urban centre, located along the Soesdyke-Linden Highway.
