The group Stakeholders against Destruction for Toco is reminding the relevant authorities that residents do not want to be side lined from consultation over construction of a port in the rural area.
The National Infrastructure Development Company Limited has advertised for consultancy services in relation to the Ministry of Works and Transport project.
In a print advertisement NIDCO explained that the government is desirous of constructing the port and determining whether any upgrades are needed at the Scarborough Port in Tobago to accommodate the services emanating from the new port to be established in Toco.
It added that on confirmation of the port location, the consultant shall undertake sufficient conceptual designs to define the scope of works.
SAD for Toco President, Steven Mc Clatchie, in a News Power Now interview this afternoon said the residents are closely monitoring the development.
