Dunkley discusses airport with students

Michael Dunkley, the Premier, meets with Grade 3 students at Mount St. Agnes (Photograph supplied)

Michael Dunkley met a group of students yesterday to discuss the airport redevelopment project.

The Premier and the Grade 3 Mount St Agnes students talked about the demand for the facility, its proposed location, the timeline for construction, and the future for the island’s existing airport. Mr Dunkley described the hour-long discussion as “robust and lively”.

Legislation paving the way for the project was passed in the House of Assembly earlier this month.

The project, Mr Dunkley said at the time, will “be significantly beneficial for the people of Bermuda”, pointing to the creation of long-term jobs, as well as providing a boost to the economy.

This is the second time this week the Premier has met with a group of students, having visited Heron Bay Primary on Monday.

The visits, he said, were “in keeping with his commitment” on ensuring open dialogue with all members of Bermuda’s community.
