Cabinet has approved the sum of $100 Million dollars to construct a permanent scale at Harbour View, Kingston, to weigh trucks.
The scale facility, one of four to be established across the island, is intended to reduce Government spending on the repair and maintenance of roads that are prematurely damaged by over laden vehicles.
This was announced at the Post Cabinet Press Conference Wednesday (October 21), by Minister with responsibility for Information,Telecommunications and Special Projects, Hon. Daryl Vaz.
Minister of Transport and Works, Hon. Mike Henry, recently announced that the scales had been purchased and were awaiting installation.
The contract for the construction of the permanent truck scale facility at Harbour View has been awarded to Tankweld Construction Company. Harbour View has been selected as an urgent location as the entry point of trucks transporting marl, aggregate and shale from quarries and mining operations along the Pamphret Main Road from St Thomas to the Corporate Area.
