Bexon and Marc residents have heard directly from consultants on recommended proposals for reducing the high risk of floods in their communities.
The initiative, spearheaded by the Ministry of Infrastructure, Ports Services and Transport, was conducted by Dillon Consulting through funding provided by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).
Government, through a competitive bidding process, contracted the international firm of Dillon Consulting to undertake the study and hopes to use its recommendations to support desilting and other measures already undertaken to help abate flooding in the two communities.
Associate Water Resources Engineer with Dillon Consulting, Andrew Chan, said new bridges with increased hydraulic capacity have been recommended.
It is expected that Dillon Consulting will use the information gathered from the consultation with Bexon and Marc residents to finalize and present their report to the ministry.
