A mid-November reopening date is being projected for the West End port facility which has been closed for more than a year now.
Works Minister Mark Vanterpool made this promise – the latest among a number of others – during the NDP’s radio programme this week.
“We are doing some things right now with a temporary building that we are putting down there … We are working towards that and we want to see it open at least a little while before Christmas so that we can have the traffic to St Thomas coming back up with passengers to the West End port area,” Vanterpool said.
The port is now only being used to accommodate private traffic.
Vanterpool had said months ago that government would erect a semi-permanent structure at the West End port by late-April or early-May.
That was the second promise from the minister in relation to a suitable structure arriving at the port.
The minister first promised to erect a temporary structure in December 2017.
