Chairman of Region Six, Zulfikar Mustapha said the facility is to be handed over to the Basic Needs Trust then to the Regional Administration.The project cost $97M.This Government of Guyana/Caribbean Development Bank/Canadian International Development Agency/Basic Needs Trust project was executed by contractors Hassan N. Pasha of Chateau Margot on the East Coast of Demerara and Sattaur Mohammed of Essequibo.The first contract for $98M was awarded to Hassan N. Pasha in early 2009. Initial work began on February 15 that year and was expected to run for nine months.The initial job was for the construction of a modern market approximately 15,000 square feet with appropriate sections. However, work halted sometime in August 2009 after some financial problems and the contract went back to the Tender Board after consultation with representatives of the Caribbean Development Bank.Last year a new contractor, Sattaur Mohammed, signed an agreement with the Basic Needs Trust Fund to complete the venture at a cost of $36 M.Under his guidance, work recommenced in mid-December 2009. He was expected to finish the project by the end of January 2010 but that did not happen. The new date of completion was then shifted to April 24 and this too did not materialise.The local administration is expected to take full control and a market committee was established in February 2009. It comprises members of the Port Mourant/John’s Neighbourhood Democratic Council and vendors. The committee is to meet tomorrow to deal with the allocation and construction of stalls. In June, Contractor Sattaur built model stalls to serve as a guideline to the vendors who are expected to make their own. Many of them secured the service of a private contractor to carry out the task. The stalls cost at least $10,000 each to construct.Mr. Mustapha said the vendors would not take up their positions in the facility until it is handed over to Regional Administration and would continue to ply their trade on the roadway. So far 700 applications for spots were submitted and old vendors would be given first priority.According to him, the Minister of Finance, Dr. Ashni Singh and Minister of Local Government, Kellawan Lall are to agree on a date for the commissioning of the Port Mourant Market in September.
