  • In the nights when you are on the bridge and look northward to Georgetown the view is spectacular. It is a metal floating bridge that is normally kept clean and maintained regularly. There is a part for pedestrians to walk over during the day.
  • Oh this is the worst bridge in the world. Always delays and always constructions. Guyana needs a new bridge.
  • At 1.8km long, this 'floating' bridge should be a unique addition to any visitor's list of things to do.
  • Amazing crossing for pedestrians
  • It was so exciting driving over a floating bridge!
