Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Dr Roger Luncheon

The government yesterday announced the award of an additional US$5M in contracts to complete the Amaila Falls road project, but remains stumped in making a decision on what appears to be the two toughest sections of the road to complete.The government made a decision to divide the road into sections and award contracts for each section.This follows the termination of the US$15.4M contract that was handed to Florida Puja-Shop owner Makeshwar “Fip” Motilall under the former Bharrat Jagdeo presidency.Before his contract was terminated in mid-January this year, Motilall is reported to have received some US$8M.Head of the Presidential Secretariat,Cheap Jerseys USA, Dr Roger Luncheon,NFL Jerseys China, yesterday announced that the Cabinet had given its “no objection” to the award of four more contracts.Toolsie Persaud,Cheap Jerseys NFL China, which previously received contracts for two sections of the road, has received a further two contracts totaling $619M.The previous two contracts to Toolsie Persaud were worth an estimated $370M each.The other two new contracts which government gave the green light for are: $182.3 M to Ivor Allen Construction and $281.7M to G. Bovell Construction Services.The outstanding sections of the road are sections Seven and Eight, which Dr Luncheon indicated could be the toughest terrain to cut a road through.“This is really virgin territory; this is what takes you out to the Kuribrong (river), through pretty dense jungle,” Luncheon stated.The award of the new contracts follows an initiative of the Ministry of Public Works to get contractors to bring down costs after “sky high” bids were submitted.Dr Luncheon had stated that the Minister of Transport, Robeson Benn, would meet with the bidders in hopes of reaching “financial rectitude.”Dr Luncheon reiterated that the cost of building the road to the Amaila Falls will cost more than the original contract price of US$15.4M.With the new contracts, it would bring the total amount expended and committed to US$13M.The award of the remaining contracts will determine the final cost of the project.The termination of Motilall’s contract followed unrelenting investigation by Kaieteur News and that of other stakeholders who questioned Motilall’s ability to execute the contract.On January 12, the new Donald Ramotar government terminated the contract from Fip Motilall’s Synergy Holdings and moved to seize all of his equipment.The government further determined that the contractor will pay US$120,000 in liquidated damages.The road would pave the way for the Amaila Falls Hydroelectric Project which is described as just part of a larger effort to revolutionise Guyana’s power generation infrastructure.The storage dam site would be located near the top of Amaila Falls and would impound the waters of both the Kuribrong and Amaila Rivers.The Amaila site is located on the Kuribrong River, a tributary of the Potaro River in West Central Guyana.The nearest point of access is the airstrip at Kaieteur Falls on the Potaro River,Wholesale Jerseys USA, approximately 15 miles to the south.An overland trail exists from Kaieteur to Amaila.Access is also provided overland by an all-weather road through Tumatumari on the Potaro River and on to Mahdia and Kangaruma.River access along the Potaro-Kuribrong Rivers to the foot of Amaila Falls involves several portages around rapids and waterfalls.The road from Tumatumari was recently extended to Mahdia/Kangaruma that brings the project closer to the site but approximately 30 miles of additional roads will need to be built to the top of Amaila Falls.The Government of Guyana had granted the road building contract in March 2010.The then Bharrat Jagdeo government had vociferously defended the contract given to Motilall and his company, Synergy Holdings, and refused to terminate the contract despite mounting controversy over Motilall’s suitability and ability to complete the contract.As of December 2011, Synergy Holdings Inc had reportedly completed an accumulative 40 per cent of the Works despite repeated urgings and interventions from the Project Engineer and the Consulting Firm to have the project completed.Synergy Holdings was the original developer of the Amaila Falls Hydro Project.However, the company realised that it could no longer execute the project and its licence was transferred to Sithe Global.Less than six months after the licence transfer, Synergy Holdings, under Makeshwar “Fip” Motilall, secured the US$15.4M contract from Government to build roads and bridges leading to the project site.The government announced the award of the contract to Motilall on March 26,Cheap China Jerseys, 2010.Synergy Holdings was given the first notice to proceed on October 5,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping, 2010 for some sections of the road, while the green light for the other section through virgin rainforest was given on January 11, last year.Those bidding for the contracts were asked to provide their experience in similar large scale projects together with references and credentials, and detail the equipment they own and would require to carry out the project.
