MINERS ASSOCIATION WANTS ENFORCEMENT OF WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS FOR TRUCKS USING INTERIOR ROADS

The Guyana Gold and Diamond Miners Association is concerned about the overloading of Trucks traversing the Roads to the interior Regions.

The concern comes on the “heels” of the collapse of Two Sections of One of the main Roads to the interior Region and damage to Bridges in recent Months.

In a recent Statement , the Miners Association reminded that when the Roads become deplorable, there is more down time which affects the Industry and other Commuters and that results in an increase in the operation Cost to Miners and other Hinterland Road Users.

The Association wants the Government of Guyana to enforce the established Road Users Agreement which stipulates and monitors the Weight Restrictions for Trucks/Vehicles transporting Fuel and other Supplies at key Points such as Linden and Bartica Towns.

The GGDMA said it is of the view that some trucking Services are damaging the Roads, due to their excessive Weights. The Miners Body said it remains supportive of a culture of responsible use of interior Roads.
