Demerara Harbour Bridge

img_3910Spanning Peter’s Hall on its eastern edge and Schoonard/ La Grange on the western edge, the bridge is a vital, linking spanning the east and west banks of the Demerara River. Persons living in the Essequibo communities and beyond also utilize the bridge to access the capital city and other areas in eastern Guyana.

The Demerara Harbour Bridge is not, as is widely believed, the longest of its kind in the world. It is in fact, only the fourth longest and was established in 1978 and consists of 61 spans of varying lengths and floats on 122 steel pontoons.

A number of buoys are attached to the structure and serve as a safety measure in case of persons accidentally falling overboard. Described as one of Guyana’s majestic landmark, the 6074- foot floating toll structure was opened to the public on the 2nd of July, 1978.

Attached to the bridge is a walkway which is used by pedestrians for various reasons. Sightseers, tourists, and lovers spend many leisurely hours on the walkway while health enthusiasts use it as an exercise footpath. The bridge’s walkway is seen as a recreational outlet from where the public views the awesome fireworks display by the Guyana Defense Force on holidays.
