That’s according to the Corporation’s general manager Eddie Henry who said that the company has been able to meet its obligations to staff in recent times. “Currently we are engaged in a major project in the Tan Tan area that will involve surfacing and drainage of the strip of road from Capuchin to Tan Tan. “We have also done preliminary work and mobilization in Vieille Case for implementation of a resurfacing drainage, retaining wall and that we expect to start this week,” he said.Mr Henry reported that the Corporation has been awarded a contract to undertake an asphalt concrete surface for the new state house. That aspect will commence today, Wednesday 14th August and is expected to be completed by the weekend. He said these three major projects are expected to sustain the company in the new financial year. “We’ve been able to position ourselves to put in bids for government projects which have been implemented and so far two of our bids have been returned successfully,” he said. The Public Works Corporation has had several challenges over the past few years with regards to salaries and projects. Employees protested a decision to make some workers redundant citing lack of work to meet demands as its problem. The Public Service Union, the body representing employees, made representation on their behalf and these employees were recalled. Dominica Vibes Newslast_img
