The first stop was at Georgetown where a Business Complex is expected to be constructed opposite the popular restaurant Ferdie’s Footsteps. The Complex is expected to house the National Commercial Bank, a library and other shopping areas.

Because of its location, a sea defence wall, estimated to cost over EC$2 million will have to be constructed.
