The West End Ferry dock is expected to resume ferry-related operations in the next few weeks.
The dock will be opened for public transport operations by that time because of a temporary building that will be erected where the now-destroyed terminal was located.
Works Minister, Mark Vanterpool made the announcement during a community meeting in the First Electoral District this week.
“[The structure will be like] the one they put in Virgin Gorda for the school (Bregado Flax Education Centre/Primary Division). It’s a 4,000 square-foot building. It can go up very quickly in three days,” Vanterpool said.
The minister said the structure will be used to accommodate persons arriving and departing at the dock; adding that officials will operate out of a separate container.
“We are hoping to bring it here for Christmas. I’m not sure yet. I doubt it will be, but we are working to get it here as quickly as possible.”
Vanterpool, in the meantime, noted that the structure will be a short-term arrangement.
“We are putting a permanent structure there but for the next two to three months or so, something temporary has to go there,” he reasoned.
