Work begins on multi-million dollar airport boulevard project

Yet another major infrastructural project gets under way in Statia, this one aimed at uplifting the environment surrounding the  FDR Airport.

The groundbreaking for the first phase of the Airport Boulevard project took place this morning, Monday 3 October 2022. It entails the reconstruction of the roads, construction of a roundabout, parking areas and a passenger drop-off area at the front of the airport, called the “kiss and go” area. The cost of this phase of the project is US$4.9 million.

“Slowing but surely, inch by inch, we are building a more appealing, environmentally friendly and accessible Statia for all our residents,” Government Commissioner Alida Francis told a brief ceremony attended by several key officials and dignitaries, including a representative of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management in the Netherlands, which is funding the project.

“We are building for today, tomorrow and the future. It’s up to each and every one of us to join heads, hearts and hands towards building, protecting and preserving a more all-embracing Statia that we all can enjoy.”

The contractor for the project – which is expected to be completed in 13 months – is Statia Roads & Construction.
