Tourism Councillor Joey Hew said the cruise berthing facility will start in the middle of next year which he believes will add to the efforts to revitalise George Town.
Mr. Hew said a contract was awarded in July to determine the cost to re-position piers. He said pre-qualifying contractors to take on the project will start by December this year and says all tenders should be issued by March next year.
“We should have more news going out as tenders go out for the cruise berthing facility and we are looking forward to the project starting in the middle of next year 2017 so these are all integral parts of the re-development of George Town including and intertwined with the road network system,” Mr. Hew said.
Earlier in July, Deputy Premier Hon. Moses Kirkconnell said the estimated price of the whole project is $150 million.
We reached out to Councillor Hew to tell us the price which the Dutch company will charge the government and if the pier designs have been received. We are awaiting a response.
