Yesterday, the Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development signed several contracts that will see two of Georgetown’s main Municipal Markets benefit from infrastructure rehabilitation.
In addition, as part of the Regional Solid Waste Programme, an access road to the landfill site in Region Six will be constructed.
According to the Ministry, in August, Minister Norman Whittaker, conducted visits to vendors at La Penitence and Bourda Municipal Markets to listen to the challenges they are experiencing daily as they operate their businesses.
Resulting from those visits, six contracts for market infrastructure improvement were signed yesterday. These include the de-silting of internal drains at La Penitence Market. This was awarded to Mike Lall.
Lall also won contracts for the de-silting of internal drains at Bourda Market and of the Orange Walk Canal, Bourda.
A contract also signed for the rehabilitation of the sanitary block at La Penitence Market was awarded to Geoffrey James Construction. That company will also construct a footpath along Saffon and Hunter Streets, a market tarmac and fence on Saffon and Hunter Street.
According to the Ministry, as part of the “Regional Clean-Up” aspect, to aid in the Regional Solid Waste Programme, Region Six is the first of five regions to benefit from rehabilitation/construction of access roads to the landfill sites.
Associated Construction was awarded the contract to construct the access road to the landfill site in Bel view.
The ministry assured all contracts were awarded by way of Invitation to Bids which were advertised and subsequently tendered for on September 23, 2014.
The contracts were to the tune of $41.8M and are expected to commence soon.
