Airport expansion works continue despite non-approval from parliament

airport 8thDespite parliament not approving the $5.6billion funding for the Cheddi Jagan airport , expansion works are still moving apace. On a visit to the site yesterday the sand piling exercise was in full swing with several heavy-duty trucks  in operation. A road was cut around Jubilee resort to provide easy access to and from the sand pit to the site.

China Harbour Engineering Company is currently carrying out the works at this section in the Timehri North area.

When completed, the runway will be able to accommodate Boeing 747-400 aircraft, expansion and modernisation of the CJIA through the construction of a new terminal building, air-bridges, taxiways, and the extension of the runway by a further 3500 feet.

 Some residents who are living in close proximity of the construction are hoping that they will be compensated. Some residents said they were given letters to move but since then no one in authority has met with then to discuss the relocation plan.

Most of the residents have invested millions to build permanent structures after they were given all assurances by then housing minister that the area would be regularized. At least 2,400 persons live in approximately 400 houses that they have built over the past 30 years.
