THE CONSTITUTION RIVER REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT continues  to be on schedule and within budget. Chief executive officer of the Barbados Tourism Investment Inc., Stuart Layne, said phase two of the beautification project was on schedule and expected to meet the January 2014 completion date. The project is to help improve the beauty  of Bridgetown, offer much more control  of the flooding suffered in the past and help  with the creation of a marine life habitat. Phase two of the project runs from the point  of the completion of phase one by the Charles Duncan O’Neal Bridge and will end at the Queen’s Park Bridge, encompassing the section of the Constitution River that has been  a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Layne said consideration was still being given to a third phase of the project, which,  if it became a reality, would run from the Queen’s Park Bridge to the Globe Cinema. Marketing and public relations consultant  for C.O. Williams Construction, Mike Williams, said that the work was being done in 100-metre sections, with each section taking at least  three weeks to complete. The beautification project will include  the construction of new embankments and  a mangrove, with benches along the banks. (LK)
