Upgrade for Six Roads Market
Efforts are under way by the Ministry of Agriculture to replace the cold storage facility at the Six Roads Public Market in St Philip following complaints by butchers.
In a release from the Government Information Service yesterday, the ministry revealed that replacing of the storage facility was part of the overall plans to refurbish the facility that included the main building, the food court and the flea market area.
Manager of Markets Henderson Greaves said that there were two meat chill rooms at Six Roads and over time the ministry had spent a considerable amount of money in repairing the smaller of the two units.
He said due to the age of the cold storage equipment and the rising cost of repairs, the Ministry of Agriculture took the decision, on the advice of its technical staff, to replace the obsolete unit. (SP/BGIS)
