Drainage work being planned for Port Antonio
The Government has awarded a contract to VINCI Construction Grands Projets, based in France, to undertake works on the Port Antonio Sewerage and Drainage project (Stage Two).
The contract, in the sum of J$361,743.45 plus US$4,721,641.82 (J$606,830,259), is being fully financed under the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)-funded Kingston Metropolitan Area (KMA) Water Supply Improvement Programme.
It will allow for the provision of necessary services to design, build, and operate the components required to facilitate the conveyance, treatment, and disposal of sewage generated in Port Antonio to the Anchovy Waste Water Treatment Plant, which is to be rehabilitated.
Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Dr Horace Chang, said the works will be undertaken over 16 months.
