The dredging project at the St Johnâ€™s Harbour should start at the end of the winter cruise season in early 2013.
Chairman of the St Johnâ€™s Development Corporation (SJDC) Sylvester Browne stated: â€śIt cannot be done before the season, but right after the season dies out, they can start the job. Cabinet has located the source that can do the job at a cost that they can afford.â€ť
Chairman also added that the removal of silt and sludge from the harbour will cost the government in the range of US $8 or $9 million, reports antiguaobserver.com.
