TAKUTU BRIDGE – Rupununi. Guyana

Takutu Bridge joining Brazil and Guyana

The Takutu Bridge (above) was built by Brazil to bridge the Takutu River border with Guyana.  It is located a few miles from Lethem in the Rupununi.  Its nearest Brazilian town is Bon Fim across the border but Boa Vista is just 120 km (80 mls) away by high speed highway.
