DEPUTY Australian High Commissioner Michael Hassett and Western provincial government delegation consisting of Premier David Gina, Provincial Secretary Jeffery Wickham and officials on Tuesday held an informal visit to the new Gizo re-development market house project site to see the progress done by the Reeves International and local contractors in Western province.
The one-day visit came as part of an invitation from the Reeves International Project Manager Andrew McEvoy after a short discussion on latest work being carried out with the Deputy High Commissioner Australian Michael Hasset, Premier David Gina, Provincial Secretary Jeffery Wickham and other officials at the provincial assembly conference room yesterday.
The delegation led by the Project Manager visited the gabion wall sites from the eastern section to northern section at the new re-development market house project.
Mr McEvoy briefed the delegates at the site saying the seawall is finally completed. The small delay was due to bad weather over the month of August, an estimate of 40-plus hours were lost due to the bad weather.
The group also visited the footing site, concreting works sites and seawall gabion concrete slab sites.
Commissioner Hasset is happy with the current progress at the new Gizo re-development market project house site.
“I would like to thank Reeves International, local contractors and provincial government for your strong support to complete this market project for the people in the province.”
