Sea defense works under 9th EDF 60% complete, though lagging (Guyana)
Guyana's public works and communications ministry has completed 60% of the construction and rehabilitation of the Ninth European Development Fund's (9th EDF) sea defense infrastructure along the country's coastline, though some works under the project are lagging, government information service Gina reported.


The project must be completed by December 2011 to facilitate works under the 10th EDF.


"We still find the contractor behind schedule. This initiative is scheduled to be completed in 2011, so by December 2011 it is expected that no further funds from the European Union will go into the 9th EDF project," said the ministry's chief sea and river defense officer, Geoffrey Vaughn. "Therefore it is of importance that the contractor speeds up, along with the managing consultant."


The project, for which funds exceed 17mn euros (US$22.6mn), involves the reconstruction of 1.6km of sea defense as well as rehabilitation or maintenance of approximately 18km. Works began in November 2009.
