Government granted the 13th contract on Tuesday from its $15.6 million loan from the Caribbean Development Bank, which the CDB granted in 2012 to help repair damage from the 2010 Tropical Storm Otto.
Autland Heavy Equipment received $623,000 to undergo rehabilitative work stretching from Harrigan Estate to Sea Cows Bay, including the construction of a retaining wall, kerbs and slipper drains.
Government has now used $10,763,990 of the CDB loan, leaving about $4.9 million to be spent, according to Communications and Works Minister Mark Vanterpool.
At the press conference, Mr. Vanterpool provided an update on the CDB projects, explaining that seven have been completed and five others are ongoing (see sidebar).
All but two of those projects have been conducted by Autland, Quality Construction or G-Unit Construction.
