Theft OF 37 LED STREET LIGHTS
The Ministry of Public Infrastructure’s Electrical Engineering Department has reported the theft of thirty-seven (37) Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Street Lights in the following areas:
# of Units
Eccles Industrial Site Road, East Bank Demerara
Farm Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara
Schonnard Access Road, West Bank Demerara
Lombard Street, Georgetown
Providence Access Road, East Bank Demerara
Takuba Road Lodge Housing Scheme, Georgetown
According to the Department, the replacement cost per unit amounts to seventy-three thousand Guyana dollars (GY $73,000) which will cost the Ministry two million seven hundred and one thousand Guyana dollars (GY $ 2,701,000) in total to replace all thirty-seven LED lights.
Based on the engineer’s estimate, this is quite an exorbitant amount of finance to replace the LED lights, notably, these lights were installed in November 2019 in the aforementioned areas.
The Ministry is hereby pleading with the perpetrators to refrain from committing larceny against its country; as the Government of Guyana seeks to improve safety and security on Guyana’s road network.
The general public is kindly asked to report any suspicious act of theft to the Ministry’s Public Relations Department on 592-227-0799, via Facebook Messenger at the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, or via Email at email@example.com.
