A sum of $302.8 million will be spent by the Government for the installation of floodlights at Sabina Park by July this year.

Details of the allocation are contained in the 2014/15 Estimates of Expenditure, now before the House of Representatives.

The project, which is being implemented by the Urban Development Corporation (UDC), with funding from the Indian Government and the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF), commenced this month.

It aims to improve Jamaica’s attraction as a destination for sports tourism and towards the continued development of cricket in Jamaica, in particular at the youth and professional levels.

Achievements under the project so far include the awarding of a contract to Fosrich Group of Companies for the installation of the lights and associated works.

In the coming weeks, the Government plans to commence civil engineering works; install electrical conduits, wiring and fixtures; procure and install generators; and install a lighting control system.
