A $50.7-million contract was signed last Thursday for the reconstruction of the Kingston and St Andrew Family Court Attendance Centre.

Minister of Justice Delroy Chuck and permanent secretary in the ministry, Carol Palmer signed on behalf of the Justice Ministry at their offices on Constant Spring Road, St Andrew.

The centre, which was destroyed by fire on December 30, 2015, will be located at the corner of East and Beeston streets in downtown Kingston.

Palmer said that children who are dependent on the resocialisation services of the Kingston and St Andrew Family Court Attendance Centre have been displaced in their educational pursuits.

She expressed the hope that contractor Contraxx Enterprise Limited will deliver on their agreement to complete the centre by January 2019.
