Truck hanging over Demerara Harbour Bridge halts traffic for over an hour – 29th Apr 2013
The owner of the truck is thankful that the truck did not plunge into the Demerara river after it encountered difficulties while going up the high span on the Demerara Harbour Bridge. He was transporting stone at the time.
Bridge Manager Rawlston Adams said he received a call at about 2:30 about the mishap.
Adams said they were able to call shipping company John Fernandes Ltd., for assistance and were happy at the prompt response.
Adams said there appears to be no major damage done to the bridge, but that they are still making an assessment.
