Treasury Building (FP)
THE PUBLIC HAS been advised that the Ministry of Transport and Works will commence the construction of ramps this weekend to improve access to the Treasury Building.
Construction is expected to continue until Friday, March 11, and will be completed in two phases. The ramp at the northern entrance to the building will be built first, and during this phase, all persons accessing the Treasury Building will be required to use the southern entrance, that is, the side closest to the Careenage.
According to an official at the building, the second phase will encompass the construction of a ramp at the southern entrance to the building. During that time, the northern entrance will be accessible to staff who work in the Treasury Building and members of the public making payments to the Barbados Revenue Authority. Persons who normally use the southern entrance of the Treasury Building will be required to use the steps on the eastern side to access the entrance on the first floor.
Vehicular access from the northern gate through to the southern gate will not be affected during the construction period.
The management of the Treasury Building apologises for any inconvenience which may be caused as a result of the construction of the ramps. (BGIS)
