'ANR' airport repairs by Dec
The first phase of improvements and enhancements scheduled for ANR Robinson Airport in Tobago is expected to be completed by December 15.
This from Airports Authority chairman Gerald Hadeed, following a stakeholders meeting and site visit yesterday morning.
"We're looking at expanding the terminal for international arrivals—which currently can accommodate approximately 150 persons comfortably—to be able to deal with double that amount.
"We've also earmarked several improvements to the existing structure, including replacing the roof—which leaks terribly at the moment—and hope to enhance the overall facility significantly by December 15," said Hadeed.
Members of the board of directors of the Airports Authority met with Minister of Tourism Stephen Cadiz and Minister of Transport Chandresh Sharma, as well as Tobago Organisation of the People Leader Ashworth Jack, Tourism Development Company (TDC) chairman Rajiv Shandilya and several engineers and consultants for a tour of the airport facilities at Crown Point, Tobago, yesterday.
