Despite assurances that the traffic situation on the Demerara Harbour Bridge and along the Eastern and Western Banks of the Demerara River is under control, commuters have been saying otherwise.The junction at which the Demerara Harbour Bridge adjoins the East Bank thoroughfare is a nightmare for rush hour commuters.Their call to have better traffic management systems in place, especially in that area – where the West Bank traffic merges with the East Bank – has been ongoing for years,Kurt Warner Cardinals Jersey, and fingers have been pointing at the Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation (DHBC).The DHBC says that it has been doing all in its power to ease the flow of traffic and at the same time, balance the demands of both vehicular traffic and sea-bound vessels,holesale Soccer Jerseys, however, the task is somewhat challenging.General Manager of the DHBC, Rawlston Adams told this publication yesterday that the bridge traffic “should not be seen in isolation” with the traffic situation on the Eastern and Western Banks of the Demerara River.“The traffic issue has to be taken and looked at in totality and not just the bridge. You have to look at how it’s (traffic) feeding onto the bridge, how it’s discharged off the bridge,” Adams said.He stated that the DHBC has taken several measures to allow the smooth flow of traffic in the mornings. One of these measures being the adjusting of the 05:30 hrs (5:30 a.m.) openings to 5 a.m.Adams indicated that he is aware of some traffic violations which occur on the bridge and the DHBC is working with the Guyana Police Force to address those issues.CHANGE IN PEAK PERIODSThe General Manager said that when the traffic increased, they began looking at the double lanes and the duration.

He pointed out that if one specific maintenance crew should work at night, there will be need to have other departments on duty as well.“We do make enough money to cover our operations during the nights,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, it sends up our costs…We do not have enough revenue,”With regard to having openings only at nights, Adams stated that it is currently in the pipeline.He continued that the DHBC has just recently received the survey works,Wholesale Jerseys From China, which was commissioned by the Maritime Administration Department (MARAD), to determine alignments.This came in wake of a meeting that was held with shippers who expressed concerns about alignments and night retractions.“There has been some consideration about transiting during the day… going south-bound; they have no problems coming east-bound.”Adams stated that there are some issues that still need to be ironed out to have night retractions.
