Mia: Seven years to rebuild

Social Share

Barbados’ capital city of Bridgetown is about to be transformed.

But that transformation will also inconvenience Barbadians for a few years, Prime Minister Mia Mottley warned last night in a 60-minute Conversation With The Nation, in which she outlined parts of a seven-year plan aimed at returning the island to international prominence.

The Prime Minister also had a warning for adults and young people, imploring the adults to raise their social standards so they could trickle down to their children, and reminding young people that criminal behaviour would be targetted.

“There will be disruption in Bridgetown for the next few years. We have to take down to build back,” Mottley said while revealing that the old NIS building at Fairchild Street and Fire Station on Probyn Street would be dismantled as Government prepares to rebuild a fresh Fairchild Street market for vendors, and revamp the historic Golden Square Circle, where the 1937 Riots are commemorated.
