Work To Resume On Stalled Car Park In January – Hurst

8

The government has given a date of January 6, 2020 for the commencement of works at the stalled car park.

Government’s spokesman Lionel Max Hurst says “we also intend to turn what would have been the supermarket to be used as offices to be occupied by the government of Antigua & Barbuda.”

He said this would help the government to save money by reducing rental fees.

Hurst said a decision was made by the Cabinet of Antigua & Barbuda to spend in the region of EC$ 14 million to make it a usable place.

Among other improvements is the installation of proper facilities to serve as a modern bus station.

“We want to make it as pleasant as the West Bus Station,” he said.

A food court where vendors on Old Parham Road will be located will also be added to the project.

The stalled project was purchased by the government of six million dollars.

It stalled after the collapse of the Trinidad investors and has remained unused for over 10 years.

  1. I bought a CD with that song from Max Hurst about four years ago. During her last budget presentation Mary Claire Hurst said that work was to begin in two months. We have had sevreal pronouncements that work will begin shortly. I will be like St Thomas. I will believe when I see. The same thing is being said about the old treasury building. When the treasury relocated Max Hurst said work would begin soonest in getting it ready to be used as the industrial court. Reventky he came back and told usbthat the same building will be used for setting up a modern registry. Not a leaf has been swept off the ground. The magistrates’ court has been closed for a year. Work was promised to begin immediately when it was closed. Not a stroke has been done. When will all of the promises cease and real work begin. A promise is a comfort to a fool. Are they taking us all for fools?

  2. Work should have started long time ago!!
    Gov’t is continuous….. Why was the car park sitting there like a white elephant? Was this similar to MSJMC prior to 2007?
    Come on ABLP & UPP, delaying projects are wasting tax payers monies and putting them into more expense unnecessarily……..
