Region Seven Chairman, Holbert Knights feels that his close supervision of the roads project in Bartica may have led to savings. He said that the money saved may also have gone to helping projects in other communities.The Bartica  project involved surfacing the seven avenues and nine streets in the community at a cost of $888 million.  The project also involved works on the drains in the former mining community.Funding was provided by the Caribbean Development Bank through a programme called Community Services Enhancement which was ongoing in four locations simultaneously. There were works at Charity, Parika and Supenaam where an unused stelling was built.The Bartica project entailed two inches of crusher run and three inches of bitumen with the former providing a base for the bitumen surface. The project document revealed that the contractor, Nauth and Sons, was allowed $161 million for the purchase of crusher run.But as Mr Knights explained there was no need for crusher run on some roads since they were already asphalted. This earlier surface formed a ready foundation. Among these were First Avenue,-the main thoroughfare; First Street; Seventh Avenue; parts of Fifth Street and sections of Fourth Avenue.With its natural sandy terrain,NFL Jerseys China, the contractor needed to dig certain roads to accommodate the crusher run.
