According to jamaicaobserver.com, the Kingston Wharves’ port expansion project will cost up to US$50 million.
This very important project can be done just in time for the completion of the Panama Canal – scheduled for the first half of 2015.
The project includes:
- creation of the new area for ships at the wharf,
- 7,969 square metres of the new new berthing facility,
- dredging to accommodate larger vessels at berths 5 through 6.
