THE FINAL DESIGN plans for the new Bridgetown Cruise Terminal Pier Project should be in the hands of Government soon, said Minister of International Transport George Hutson.
Speaking at a service yesterday at the Payne’s Bay Methodist Church, St James, in celebration of World Maritime Week, he said: “Government has approved the construction of a new cruise pier facility designed to separate cruise activity from cargo activity at the port.
“Background work started on this project in 2011 and we expect to have final designs and costings completed by the end of November.”
In an interview with the DAILY NATION after the service, Hutson explained the project would entail transforming the deep water harbour into an almost exclusively cargo only facility.Please read the full story in today’s DAILY NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
