Tenders out for removal of asbestos from PTSC

Thursday, May 29 2014

The National Insurance Property Development Company Ltd (NIPDEC) has invited contractors to tender for the project, for the removal of asbestos material found on the compound of the Public Transport Service Corporation in Port-of-Spain.

Recent testing was done in 13 specific areas of the compound, and seven confirmed of having asbestos material, leaving the workers in fear about returning to work

Newsday contacted the PTSC General Manager, Ronald Forde, during a telephone interview he said, NIPDEC has the responsibility of implementing and managing PTSC’s Public Sector Investment Project (PSIP) programme.

“The project was given to NIPDEC who is responsible for the PSIP by the Ministry of Transport, and we await information from the Ministry of Transport on when the project will commence,”Forde said.

PTSC’s management and the union are working together to get the situation under control, and to ensure the safety of the workers.

An estimated 600 drivers were relocated to the Vehicle Management Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (VMCOTT) on the Beetham Highway, Port-of-Spain, due to 25 percent of asbestos found at their lobby.

However, they will continue to operate from VMCOTT until the asbestos problem is rectified at the PTSC’s compound.
