WORK at the Carder Park complex is set for completion by next Wednesday, five months after it's schedule but still within budget.
Portland Football Association President Raymond Grant told the Portland Municipal Corporation meeting on Thursday, "We are at the closing stage now; the contractor has requested an extension to complete the contract lasting up to the 21st of September. There is no change as it relates to the budget."
Grant told the meeting on October 14 last year that the work will last for seven months and the cost would be just under $20 million.
"Mr Chairman, I am pleased to advise that the contract for the redevelopment of Carder Park phase one was awarded to Miller's Electric and Construction Company," he said. "Works will include the expansion of the western stand to include two changing rooms and bathroom facilities, the construction of a medical facility, construction of facility for match officials, the construction of a bandstand, and other supporting amenities.
