FergusonJuly 20, 2018In “latest news” …as Guyana, UK work towards completion of phase 1Construction of the first phase of the Linden-Lethem Road Project is expected to commence soon as the Ministry of Public Infrastructure (MPI) and the United Kingdom Government work closely towards its success.A section of Linden-Lethem roadAccording to the MPI, the first phase of the project covers approximately 122.5km of road from Linden and the construction of a bridge across the Essequibo River at Kurupukari River. This phase is being funded by the UK Government through its UK Caribbean Infrastructure Partnership Fund (UKCIF) programme and is currently in the design stage.As part of the collaboration with the UK Government, the Government of Guyana is seeking to engage a multi-discipline and transport sector-experienced consulting firm to assist in the preparation of a two-component capital project. The components for this capital project include the upgrade of approximately 122.5 km of road between Linden and Mabura Hill (including drainage) and construction of a new single or dual lane fixed bridge across the Essequibo River at the Kurupukari ferry crossing( approximately 600m long).While the proposed road upgrade applies only to one section of the Linden-Lethem road, the capital works on the remaining 331.5km of the laterite road will be undertaken through funding from other sources.The MPI explained that the remaining capital works would fall under additional phases and the Ministry of Public Infrastructure has already engaged the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) on possible funding for the stretch of road between Mabura Hill and Lethem. Earlier last week, Minister within the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, Annette Ferguson, met with officials from IsDB on the project and another team is slated to return to Guyana for further discussions.The final cost of phase 1 of the project is not yet known but will be determined by the detailed design study being funded by the UKCIF.

Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis says the rule has a significant impact on the delivery of American-made ethanol – nearly 70-percent of which is transported by rail. Buis says Growth Energy and the ethanol industry have been actively engaged in this process since the outset and provided extensive comments on the proposal last year. Although Growth Energy is pleased that the rule begins to acknowledge the difference between cars in ethanol and crude service – Buis says they are extremely disappointed that regulators are requiring extensive changes to the ethanol rail fleet – while seemingly ignoring the number one cause of these accidents – broken rails and poor track condition. He says Growth Energy will work to further understand the implications of the rule and its impact on the industry.Source: NAFB News Service Lean Hogs HEM21 (JUN 21) 122.68 0.22 All quotes are delayed snapshots Previous articleSunday OutlookNext articleThe Sins of Omission: Chipotle, GMOs, & Antibiotics Andy Eubank RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Name Sym Last Change Battle Resistance With the Soy Checkoff ‘Take Action’ Program By Andy Eubank – May 4, 2015 Corn ZCN21 (JUL 21) 684.50 -14.50 SHARE How Indiana Crops are Faring Versus Other States Feeder Cattle GFQ21 (AUG 21) 151.18 2.78 Soybean ZSN21 (JUL 21) 1508.50 -35.50 U.S., Canada Transportation Departments Announce Rule for New Tank Car Standards Facebook Twitter Home Energy U.S., Canada Transportation Departments Announce Rule for New Tank Car Standards Wheat ZWN21 (JUL 21) 680.75 -3.00 SHARE STAY CONNECTED5,545FansLike3,961FollowersFollow187SubscribersSubscribelast_img
