Plans Under Way To Completely Close Of Le Repentir Dumpsite
Plans to completely close off the Mandela Dumpsite which has stretched into the Le Repentir cemetery have moved a step further. Today saw the start of the pre-tendering process to select an eligible contractor to get the work done, part of which would include building a main access road from Mandela Avenue to Cemetery Road.
The potential contractors in a guided tour of the site also got the opportunity to scope out the magnitude of the work that needs to be done. Willis added that the selected contractor will also be tasked with the responsibility of addressing any environmental issue that may prevail at the moment.
In the meantime, works to complete cell one at the new landfill site aback of Eccles are still behind schedule partly because of the weather.
To date, several contractors have since expressed an interest in closing off the Mandela site. According to Willis, on March 29th, the contract will be signed, following which the Government and the IDB- the main funding agency will evaluate the works to be done and make the necessary recommendations.
