The Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) Regional Democratic Council (RDC) has earmarked several roads in the Linden community for rehabilitation, as well as drainage and irrigation works this year. Additionally, the Council has planned to construct a bridge across the Kara Kara creek to link the Speightland community. Regional Chairman Renis Morian during a recent statutory meeting of the Council said the bridge was requested by residents of the Speightland community and is expected to be built in such a way that it will accommodate vehicular traffic.Members of the RDC at the statutory meetingMeanwhile, Regional Vice Chairman (VC) Elroy Adolph highlighted the roads which will be constructed, rehabilitated and on which the drainage and irrigation works are slated to be carried out.
