“We are currently on the 2nd phase. You know the 1st phase was completed. Lockable stalls were completed. A police post was built along with urinals and all that. The first phase of about 20 stalls was finished.”
“We have awarded the 2nd phase of about 40 shops and all other ancillary facilities. It would include mechanical sheds and all that. We have awarded that and construction is ongoing.”
“The third phase would be roads and power connection to the place,” he said.
According to the MCE, Mr. Asanga, the project has the extensive buy-in of the artisans.
“We are in the 2nd phase now, the contractors are busy a site and the fitters are part of the meetings we have. Let’s say we have a site meeting, the garages are heavily represented on the committees.”
