Public Works Minister Rayburn Blackmoore has said the Point Michel Sea Defense project, now nearing completion, will totally transform the lives of the people in the area.
The project, worth $22-million, includes road development and construction of a 720-metre sea defense wall.
Blackmoore said what is left to be done on the project are road markings, signage and construction of four vending booths in the area locally dubbed ‘Hollywood.’
“We have finished the estimates and very soon we will be engaging contractors to construct the vending booths. What we want to do in standardize the manner in which vending is done and to transform the physical landscape in the Point Michel area,” he explained.
Blackmoore continued, “The lives of the people will be totally transformed.”
