Repairs to the public access to a beach started yesterday as part of the Government’s bid to boost the economy.

The Ministry of Public Works announced earlier this month that Smith Hauling & Excavating had been awarded a contract to repair hurricane damage to the steps at Elbow Beach in Paget.

It was one of nine contracts issued as part of the ministry’s $13.4 million stimulus programme to help increase employment in the wake of the economic downturn caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Access to the public section of the beach suffered severe damage in last September’s Hurricane Teddy.

Lieutenant-Colonel David Burch, the public works minister, said that Elbow Beach was one of the projects listed as part of the stimulus scheme.

He added that the programme would help upgrade neglected infrastructure and that there were several other projects out for evaluation, including highways fencing, roadside vegetation removal and waste water section landscaping.
