Causeway repairs begin
Published on February 2, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

In an apparent effort to meet the latest January deadline for work to begin to repair the damaged causeway between North and Middle Caicos, some heavy equipment arrived at the work site on the 29th of the month.

On January 31, an excavator began to recover curry from the sea bed adjacent to the bridge. This is the material that was washed into the sea when Hurricane Hanna caused a high tide in August 2008, over four years ago.

It appears the contractor is seeking workers from local sources. However, with the diminished population of Middle Caicos, they are having problems raising a team of workers. No pre-employment activities were underway.

What is becoming clear is that the contractor, Cove Construction, is farming out much of the work to other subcontractors.
