Saint Lucia Begins Work on $175 Million Airport Transformation
The long-awaited redevelopment of Saint Lucia’s Hewanorra International Airport has begun.
The $175 million project, which will see the transformation of the island’s busiest airport, had been in the works for more than a decade until breaking ground last year.
It will cover improvements to the airside, a 100-foot air traffic control tower, five passenger loading bridges connecting to a 337,000-square-foot passenger terminal and new road traffic management systems, among other facets.
The first phase of the project has begun with hoarding of 55 acres and the relocation of 20 existing airport services.
Construction is being undertaken by Taiwan-based Overseas Engineering and Construction Company, with project management, engineering and oversight by Miami-based CBRE | Heery.
“Having completed contractual terms, as well as, the approvals for the masterplan from both international and local authorities, the Saint Lucia Air and Sea Port Authority is now ready to move ahead with the project,” the organization said.
The project is targeting a completion date in 2021.
