Public advised of construction in POS for Chinatown project

Members of the public are advised that the Port of Spain Corporation has granted approval to install two arches on Charlotte Street.

This will occur during September 18 to September 20 between the hours of 6am to 8.30pm and on October 2 to October 9 between the hours of 6am to 11pm. 

That's according to a statement issued by the Port of Spain Mayor's office which notes it forms part of the Chinatown project.

The release says the arches will be installed as follows: 

1 Corner of Park and Charlotte Street, Port of Spain

2 Corner of Independence Square North and Charlotte Street, Port of Spain. 

During the periods of construction, members of the public are advised to proceed with caution and adhere to the directions given by the Municipal Police. 

In May, the Government announced that part of Charlotte Street, be­tween Park Street and In­de­pen­dence Square, will be transformed to Chinatown. The arch­ways are to be built by the Shang­hai Con­struc­tion Group to iden­ti­fy the area.
