The Demerara Harbour Bridge Management has found itself apologising over an “f-bomb” notice that greeted commuters on Thursday evening.
The notice scroll at the bridge’s entry “F%$K GUYANA” has triggered a full investigation and has left the bridge’s management embarrassed over the breach.
An official close to the bridge’s management said it is suspected that the system might have been hacked with some inside help, but no suspect has been identified.
In a statement this morning, the Bridge Company said it views the breach as an attack on the bridge and the Government of Guyana.
The statement said the profane message that was broadcast via the digital messaging board was perpetrated with ill intent by a yet unknown person or persons, to cast a shadow of doubt over the corporation and its hardworking staff.
“This will not be taken lightly. Not only do we view it as an attack, but also a total misrepresentation of who we are as a team executing our mandate of ensuring safe, and timely crossing of everyone using the Demerara Harbour Bridge”, the statement noted.
An investigation to determine how the breach took place and identify the suspect or suspects, is underway,
