NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Construction on the redevelopment of the Exuma International Airport could commence before the year’s end, according to Aviation Director Algernon Cargill.
Cargill told Eyewitness News that the project will be one of the “jewels” of the country’s airport holdings.
“We are in the final stages of tender evaluation for the awarding of a contract for the Exuma International Airport,” he said.
“That is a $60 plus million project on the air side and land side. That project is a partnership with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB. It is expected that that contract will be awarded any day and construction can start hopefully before the end of the year,” said Cargill.
“That airport is going to be one of the jewels of our airport holdings and fortunately we will duplicate the same plans in North Eleuthera,” he continued.
