KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Government says a contract valued at $722.5 million was awarded to Surrey Paving and Aggregate Company Limited for the redevelopment of Hampden Wharf phase one in Falmouth, Trelawny.

Minister of Education, Youth and Information Ruel Reid made the disclosure during yesterday's post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House.

The Hampden Wharf project, to be funded by the Tourism Enhancement Fund, includes establishment of an artisan village that will accommodate 30 shops on 540 square metres of the land owned by the Port Authority of Jamaica.

Other aspects of the project include extension of the port; paved surfaces with mixed textures and defined paths; landscaped areas; storyboards where applicable; adaptive reuse of historic buildings; and a rich mix of retail and local eateries, craft and history.
