Demolition of old wards begins

The demolition and removal of the old 6A and 6B Maternal Wards is progressing ahead of schedule and should be completely removed by the end of November.

According to Associated Contractors and builders Safety Officer Mr. Joseph Pokatou the clearing and demolition of the old ward is ahead of schedule and should be completed, thus allowing construction to take place early.

Mr. Pokatou said work on the demolition was quick because his crew worked tirelessly and efficiently in ensuring they finished ahead of schedule.

Since they started in October the crew has cleared the ward and the only remnants of the ward are its foundations.

It is expected work will start on the ward once the clearing and demolition of the wards are complete.
