The Denham Suspension Bridge is located at Mahdia, Region 8, Guyana, South America. At the time of first publication of this article, the Denham Suspension Bridge, a British architectural marvel, is 90 years old and still standing strong. The Denham suspension bridge was constructed in the year 1933 during British colonial rule of then British Guiana. It was constructed by Scottish engineer John Aldi and named after then Governor of British Guiana, Sir Edward Brandis Denham.
The Denham Suspension Bridge, also called the Garraway Stream Bridge, and by local miners, the Cassandra Crossing, was constructed to link Bartica to Mahdia. It is built over the Potaro River at a location known as the Garraway Stream.
In the year 2020, the bridge was rehabilitated by the then APNU/AFC administration and declared capable of accommodating light vehicular traffic up to ten tons.
