On May 14, the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) and the Airports Authority held a public consultation at the Rovanel’s Resort on Store Bay Local Road, announcing then that Government was seeking to acquire 84 acres of land in the area to build a new airport terminal, and that construction was to begin in December.
The PM terminal building will be constructed under a BOLT (Build Own Lease Transfer) agreement, adding that the implementing agency was the National Infrastructure Development Company (NIDCO) and arrangement for the funding was to be done by the Ministry of Finance.
The THA, he said, is involved in the whole question of what will be built, as well as how the work will proceed.
Acquisition of lands for the construction of the new airport terminal in Crown Point will be done in a civilised, sensible and professional way, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley, said last Thursday.
