Fire escapes for HDC buildings

Monday, July 21 2014

WORK on the installation of fire-escapes at the Housing Development Corporation (HDC) complex, subject to an arson attack in December, 2011, is due to begin in September, Housing Minister Dr Roodal Moonilal says.

During Parliament Question Time as the House of Representatives sat last Friday at Parliament Chamber, Tower D, International Waterfront Centre in Port-of-Spain, Moonilal said the 20 families left homeless in the attack on Building Two, at Trou Macaque, Laventille, on December 20, 2011, were relocated on the same day of the incident. That incident saw four persons being killed and seven injured.

Moonilal said that last October, tender packages were sent out for renovation and upgrades to HDC buildings including the installation of fire-escape staircases. No bids were received, and the HDC then sought requests for proposals.

In the interim, Moonilal said health and safety training sessions have taken place in the community, and works should commence in September.

Also during Question Time, Planning Minister Dr Bhoe Tewarie said a proposal for a cable car at Picton was due for “further consideration”, but no decision has been taken. He said, “no specific cable car is on the table for consideration, or approval, by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago.” There is no contract, and therefore no completion date.
