Residents and visitors will have to wait another month or two before government erects the long-promised temporary structure at the West End Ferry Dock.
The Ministry of Communications and Works has been promising to erect a temporary structure at the dock since December.
The dock has not been officially reopened since being destroyed during the hurricanes.
“We did order a structure that would form a temporary housing. However, it has not arrived as yet. If I can recall correctly, it should have left on the 19th of February, so it should be close to the BVI by now,” said Permanent Secretary in the aforementioned ministry, Anthony McMaster.
He said the ministry is hoping to have the terminal reopened by late-April or by May.
Three months ago, Works Minister Mark Vanterpool said the temporary structure is a 4,000 square-foot modular building similar to the one installed at the Bregado Flax Educational Centre (Primary Division) on Virgin Gorda.
He said it takes roughly three days to assemble.
In the meantime, government announced that it will spend some $4.2 million to build a more permanent structure at the West End dock.
Construction will be funded through the $65 million government has borrowed from the Caribbean Development Bank for recovery.
