New Port On Time For Christmas

New Port On Time For Christmas

Residents of the sister isles of Carriacou and Petite Martinique are on track to receive the much promised state of the art port facility at Tyrell Bay in time for the Christmas season 2017.

The project, which began in earnest immediately following the turning of the sod on Thursday January 19, is reported to be running on schedule.

At the official commissioning of the facility, Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell and top officials of the Grenada Ports Authority, all promised that the project, which is being constructed by the China-based engineering firm, Jianshe, would be handed to the authorities in time for the 2017 yuletide season. 

To use their words, “this would be a Christmas present for the People of Carriacou and Petite Martinique”. 

On Wednesday, head of the company MrJia and the engineering consultant Selwyn Woodroffe visited the site to assess the rate of work on the project, which is sandwiched between the existing Tyrell Bay jetty to the south and the Tyrell Bay Marina to the north.

Mr Woodroffe said that they are pleased with the rate of work thus far and  they are on schedule to finish within the due date. 

The government and ports authority had promised a modern, state-of-the-art facility.  Mr Woodroffe gave assurances that his team is working according to the architectural plans.

“Very good so far as the foundations have been cast and they are now back-filling around those areas and preparing to move to the next level”, said Mr  Woodroffe.

He said that the design of the area makes it easy for the Grenada Ports Authority, in the event they need to expand the project.\
