Aishalton residents say rotting bridge putting travellers in danger


Residents of Aishalton, in Region Nine, have said that the worsening state of a bridge linking South Rupununi communities to Lethem is putting them in peril during every journey to the township. The bridge is located 400 metres from the eastern Rupununi Bridge along the main Aishalton to Lethem road.

According to residents of Aishalton, despite the fact that they are fearful of crossing the bridge, which might soon collapse, they are continuing to use it as it serves as a vital link to Lethem.(Stabroek news)…[+]
