“The bathroom building is currently being constructed and should be completed by December 2022, with a total of eight stalls, combined for male and female, and fully handicap accessible,” Honourable Rymer said.

The Minister for Works said, “In addition, the construction of the service road access is ongoing, not excluding the culmination of the construction of the bus shed and landscaping as the project progresses towards commissioning.”

The Ministry of Communications and Works has invited over 30 contractors from the contractors database to submit bids for works at the Market Square for six different petty contract works.

The Minister for Communications and Works, along with the Junior Minister for Trade and Economic Development, Honourable Shereen Flax-Charles and other personnel from the Department of Trade, Investment, Promotion and Consumer Affairs are conducting meetings to develop a comprehensive application and evaluation process whereby interested persons and vendors can apply for one of the kiosks that will be available at the Market Square upon completion.
