It is for the nation. The jubilee celebration is not a singular activity. It is an activity, which will be celebrated by all Guyanese and at this stage, because of time constraints and mobilisation of equipment and resources, it was felt that it (will) be better handled now under the Ministry (of Public Infrastructure), which has the resources to so do,Cheap Jerseys Free,” the Minister said.While Patterson acknowledged that the deadline is fast approaching, he declared that he has full confidence in his team’s ability to deliver.“As you know it will be a push because there are two things; a fear of the rains and floods, and we have somewhat tackled that, and then there are some issues in the media of safety.“But all of that will be addressed in time for the jubilee celebrations. We have examined the site and we have met all the persons so that there is an orderly handover and we have developed a plan,” the Minister said.WORKS TO BE COMPLETEDCoordinator of the Works Services, Geoffrey Vaughn, was asked to make a presentation where he provided a scope of the outstanding works which includes,China Jerseys NFL Wholesale, roofing and remedial works for the spectator bleachers; completion of the superstructure, walls and roof for the VIP stand; electrical wiring, lighting and power supply; completion of access driveways and bridges; sanitary facilities; and drainage works.Vaughn stated that the completion of the bleachers would include the replacement of damaged members (beams, columns, decking), the installation of additional structural members and the installation of roof and guttering.There are 27 stands and it is expected that four contractors (seven stands per contractor) will be asked to work on these and to pull double shifts so that the deadline can be met. The number of contractors will most likely increase, since there are some stands yet to be completed.In keeping with the rules and regulations of the National Tender and Procurement Board (NTPB),NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic, Minister Patterson said that the contractors, who were prequalified by the Ministry earlier this year, during the opening of bids for infrastructural works, will be asked to make submissions.“We usually prequalify contractors at the beginning of the year, so we would have had a list. We would have selected 13 to 15 contractors and then ask them to submit…they have to show that they [can] fulfil these requirements; that they have the capacity,Cheap NFL Jerseys, the manpower and financial capabilities, because  we are working double shifts so that would mean a double wage bill at the end of the week,” Patterson said.The Minister added that the completion of the access ways, tarmac and parking area: paving of the VIP parking area, preparation of the finished surface in general parking area, paving of an 18-foot wide access way for parade vehicles and the preparation of the tarmac area, are all expected to be completed within the next three weeks.The Ministry will be collaborating with the Ministry of Communities, Patterson said.

There are alternatives, but has not [yet] been concluded, a grant funding, which has been earmarked for such development.Cabinet has made available the sum under this Line Item and I can expend as much as $150M. However at this initial stage,Wholesale Stitched Jerseys, we do have to get this finished before, so there won’t be need for any Contingency. The Grant funding can be used to fund the remainder of the works,” the Minister said.
