The Deputy may be aware that the project to which he refers has been devolved for delivery to the Office of Public Works (OPW). The pre-qualification process for the appointment of tenderers in respect of the project is in the final stages of completion. In the meantime, the OPW is in the process of preparing tender documents to issue to the short-listed contractors.

It is a little bit too early at this stage to give a definitive timeline for when construction will begin. However, we expect tender documents to issue in the first quarter of 2019.
