The Secretary for Transport and Public Works, Raimundo do Rosário, has assured the public that negotiations to resolve delays to the construction of Taipa’s LRT section depot structure will end soon.
Speaking on the sidelines of an Urban Planning Committee meeting yesterday, Mr Rosário acknowledged that no deadline has yet been set to resolve the dispute between the government and contractor, but he hopes that negotiations will soon be completed.
The depot structure is one of five projects comprising the LRT Taipa section. It features a 130,000 square meter area, which will serve as an operation control center, a factory and maintenance building, as well as a parking and cleaning area for trains.
The Transportation Infrastructure Office (GIT) has slammed the contractor responsible for building the depot over its inactivity and inability to finish the project. The secretary has previously stated that if both the government and the contractor fail to reach a consensus, the case will be taken to court.
