Local contractors have week to prove they can cope with task of Fenella Bridge repaint

The original paint coat was specified to last 10 year before first maintenance, however it started to fail after just 5.

Repainting of the Fenella Bridge has been delayed by one week to give local contractors the opportunity to see if they can meet the technical requirements of the work.

They will also have to prove that they can be price competitive and still meet the time schedule to enable the bridge to open in time for Easter.

The original paint coat was specified to last 10 year before first maintenance, however it started to fail after just 5.

Originally it was deemed that there were no competent on Island contractors to take on the job, a local painting contractor however has since proved he would be able to complete the task.

That firm and some others have now been given the opportunity.
