Pub­lic In­fra­struc­ture Min­istry should re­lease an­nexes for re­port on De­mer­ara River Cross­ing

Stabroek News - - REGIONAL NEWS -

Dear Edi­tor, The Fea­si­bil­ity Study and De­sign for the new De­mer­ara River Cross­ing un­der­taken by LievenseCSO was re­cently re­leased by the Min­istry of Pub­lic In­fra­struc­ture (MPI). How­ever, it should be noted that the an­nexes to the re­port, ie the source data and anal­y­sis from which the con­clu­sions in the re­port were pre­sum­ably drawn, have not been re­leased to date.

The in­abil­ity to ac­cess the an­nexes makes any anal­y­sis of the LievenseCSO re­port su­per­fi­cial at best. In­deed, the con­sul­tants them­selves state in the Ex­ec­u­tive Sum­mary that “This Fi­nal Re­port sum­ma­rizes the find­ings and con­clu­sions of the study. For more de­tailed in­for­ma­tion on the sub­jects stud­ied ref­er­ence is made to the An­nexes of this Re­port com­pris­ing the de­tailed study re­ports on the var­i­ous sub­jects.”

There­fore in the in­ter­est of full dis­clo­sure and to fur­ther pub­lic dis­cus­sion on this im­por­tant project the MPI would do well to re­lease the an­nexes to the re­port.

Yours faith­fully, (Name and ad­dress sup­plied)
