Lois Leslie, Chief Executive Officer of the Eco-Industrial Development Company of Tobago (E-IDCOT) Limited said a contract is currently being finalised for work to start on the upgrading the Scarborough Market on Wilson Road.
Leslie told Newsday Tobago on Wednesday that work should begin within the next two weeks.
“We are currently putting things in place with respect to the contract and cautiously, I would say that we should expect to see work started within the next two weeks at the site,” she said.
On June 18, Hayden Spencer, Secretary of Food Production, told Newsday Tobago that the keys to the market was handed over to project managers that day E-IDCOT, that a contractor has already been sourced, and that work was to begin in two weeks’ time.
“They (E-IDCOT) were given a task to manage the project, they already did part of the process and now that they have the keys, the contractor will be mobilised and within a matter of two weeks work should start up at the market,” he said then.
Spencer has said the market upgrade was expected to cost $21 million and be completed in 18 months.
