Government Frustrated By BS&T's Slow Meandering Pace On Pierhead Project

"GOVERNMENT WILL COMPULSORILY acquire the property to begin the Pierhead Development Project if it has to come to that...

Arthur told the gathering Government had enacted in Parliament the Pierhead Development Act to show the great role the project would play in the development of Bridgetown and Barbados' economy...

"Barbados Shipping & Trading owns assets that can be of tremendous strategic importance in the future transformation of the Barbadian society. We will not succeed in taking our country to the next level of development unless we carry out the transformation of our capital City..."

He said Government had worked assiduously with BS&T to see the best beach in Barbados pressed into service and this was one of the reasons for relocating the Coast Guard.

The Prime Minister also said Barbados was being bypassed by yachts because there was no marina in that location.

The company had a right to manage its interest, he said, adding that Government could not remain mum on this issue...

"We have seen this project move from one potential partner to another to another...

He said Government was making positive steps to address the relationship with BS&T to ensure the project came to fruition."
