PROVIDENCIALES, Turks& Caicos Islands; Tuesday, June 18th, 2013- Construction has begun on the terminal facility of Providenciales International Airport. With a rigid time schedule, Dolmen Construction has managed to begin the new traffic circulation system, almost complete the upper West Parking Lot and now they have begun construction works on the terminal building. The terminal redevelopment work is very critical, as there must be a balance between maintaining current flight operations and swiftly completing constructing the new terminal facility by the end of 2014 in time for the winter tourism season.
A curb side protective barrier is in the making this week as the current overhangs will be demolished. The protective barrier will protect passengers and staff alike as the works continues on the roofing to connect the existing structure to the new structure.
The new traffic circulation system is expected to come on stream later this week. The lower parking lot will no longer be available for parking and persons will be guided to the new upper lot. Motorists are warned to drive with extreme caution when approaching the airport and pay close attention to road works.
The TCIAA apologizes in advance for any inconvenience caused during this construction period.
