New Barbuda Airport To Be Completed By June PM Says

Two years after construction started, Prime Minister Gaston Browne is reporting that the Barbuda Airport will be completed by June, 2020.

“We will complete the new Barbuda Airport by June of this year the latest and that will be completed at a cost of $55 million,” Browne told his radio show.

The project commenced in February of 2017 but was halted for several months by an injunction brought against its construction by concerned Barbudan citizens.

The islanders complain that the work to bulldoze forests in preparation for the construction work got under way when residents were evacuated from the island during Hurricane Irma.

The lifting of the injunction meant that worked resumed but not before considerable delay.

It is hoped that the new airport will serve at least two major resorts expected to be constructed in Barbuda in 2020.

The company carrying out the works is Bahamas Hot Mix, the same company in charge of building the Friars Hill and Airport Road projects.

  1. Why give the people what they do not want? Trevor Walker has said that the PM’s vision for Barbuda is NOT the vision that he Trevor has for Barbuda.

    • Strange logic wiseacre..then with your nonsensical comments…. Government should only govern where they have won the majority. It’s reasonable to say that Barbuda should not received any funds from the central government. When this political tribalism will cease? It’s 2020 and people are still following the Masses, sometimes the the M is silent.

  2. People in Barbuda need UPLIFTMENT in life. Trevor Walker believes that Him alone to succeed in Barbuda. Barbudans are waking up to Trevor NON SENSE. The Young Barbudans want progress. Hon. Gaston Browne is on the right track for Barbuda. Trevor Walker is a Millionaire ………I believe that more Barbudans would like to achieve as Trevor Walker . Take a good look at Hon. Gaston Browne PROGRESS outline for BARBUDA. Hope Barbudans will woke UP for 2020.
