Details of the undertakings were provided by Minister of Education, Youth and Information Fayval Williams during Wednesday's post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House in St Andrew.

She said Cabinet gave approval for a $649.4-million contract to J H Dunstan and Associates Limited, on behalf of the National Housing Trust (NHT), to construct a sewage treatment plant at Perth Housing Development, Phase 2 in Manchester.

A further $77.7 million is to be awarded to Champion Industrial Equipment and Supplies Limited, on behalf of the National Water Commission (NWC), for the Kencot (South Avenue) Lyndhurst Road, Melrose Avenue sewerage improvement works.
