News in brief…

PIU still open for business, still in charge of projects

The Office of the Premier has confirmed that no decision has been taken to close down the Project Implementation Unit (PIU). The office says that the PIU is part of a wider review designed to strengthen project management within the government. According to the Premier’s office, the review also involves other agencies and is not focused solely on the operations of the PIU. It says the Project Implementation Unit was part of an earlier functional review in which the PIU participated fully.

The PIU is currently managing several ongoing government projects to include: the Department of Agriculture building, the Montserrat Customs and Revenue Service building and the Radio Montserrat building. It is also managing the refurbishment of the Force 10 houses in Lookout.

Project works begin with contracts awarded

Three local contractors have been awarded contracts to complete works on the Barzey’s Road Rehabilitation Project. This was confirmed by the government of Montserrat. Six contracts were awarded to the three contractors on Wednesday under the Caribbean Development Bank’s Basic Needs Trust Fund BNTF-7 Project. The contracts were awarded to: Ryan Investments, L&L Construction and Junction Trucking Limited. Ryan Investments was awarded contracts for roads section one and five; L&L Construction for with road section four; while Junction Trucking Limited will be responsible for road section two, three and six.

The project is valued at $900,000 with most funds coming from the Caribbean Development Bank and with the government of Montserrat expected to also contribute financially. Local project manager for BNTF, Mervin Browne, is responsible for overseeing the Barzey’s Road Project.

Other road projects are due to start in the coming weeks in the Drummonds and Banks areas.
