December 22, 2018 12:30 pm
The Waterways Ministry will soon give out contracts to those responsible for drainage work.
Minister Dr Mahendra Reddy says they had called for Expressions of Interest in August so that work on improving drainage could begin in the Central, Western and Northern Divisions.
“Immediately we will be giving out contracts probably next week or week after for those places in the Central and Northern Division. These are the non-sugar areas where we have already done the scoping work. So this work will begin in two weeks’ time.”
Dr Reddy says the next round of scoping will begin in April and work should get underway by July.
