Overdue remedial works planned for rundown Stabroek wharf, Kitty market
Remedial works are expected to be carried out on the dilapidated Stabroek Market wharf and derelict Kitty Market, according to a source close to City Hall.
Last year, the Guyana Fire Service had listed the Kitty Market among the derelict buildings within the city that were fire hazards.
The source revealed that close to $80 million is to be injected into the rundown Kitty market while a significant sum will be spent on repairing the ramshackle wharf.
“Estimates were prepared for the Stabroek Market wharf and the Kitty Market and works are to be undertaken,” the source said.
“Documents were sent to the council’s Finance Department some time ago to make finances available and procure necessary material required to effect repairs to that section of the market,” the source added.
