THE Gizo Market design documents are expected to be completed and approved by early May, 2018.
Western Province Premier Wayne Maepioh yesterday said he is aware that there has been extensive work to ensure the market design is able to withstand a category 5 cyclone and incorporates select elements requested by stakeholders.
“It is still possible to complete most of the proposed works by end of this year 2018.
“It is more likely that the project will now be completed in early 2019.
“A more accurate forecast completion date will be provided in the project,” Maepioh said.
Maepioh thanked the Reeves International for the design of what will be a fantastic building for vendors in the province.
He said he is looking forward to working closely with Reeves International, local contractors and the Australian government toward the full completion of the re-development project house next year.
First project stakeholders meeting in Gizo is yet to be confirmed.
