ONE OF THE parties that will be directly affected by the demolition of the old entrance at the Bridgetown Port Inc. and construction of the new one is on board with the project.
Leader of one of the taxi associations, Anthony Eastmond (below), described the $1.1 million project as “timely” and needed.
