The Tobago Council of the People’s National Movement (PNM) has revealed plans for a $60 million revitalisation of the Scarborough waterfront.

The upgrade works include a 2,000-foot long boardwalk, marketplace, food court, restaurants, bars, cafes and entertainment and retail shopping spaces. The proposed boardwalk is expected to run almost the entire length of the waterfront along Milford Road.

The proposed works are expected to begin in January.

PNM Tobago Council leader Tracy Davidson-Celestine revealed the details on Sunday evening during a meeting in the Bethel/New Grange community. The project has been in the works for the past three years and is being jointly funded by the State and the Inter American Development Bank.

Davidson-Celestine said Tobagonians will have a “new and improved Scarborough.”

One key aspect of the project is that it will undertake a greener approach using both solar power and environmentally friendly infrastructure.

This first phase of the capital’s restructuring is expected to take 18 months.

Davidson-Celestine said the PNM administration has been rolling out a development plan for Tobago in stages and that the Scarborough waterfront project was up next.

“This project comes on the heels of the development of the ANR Robinson airport. This project comes on the heels of 300 rooms that will come to this island through an international brand called the Marriott. This project comes on the heels of us wanting to ensure that Tobago is a liveable place; that Tobago has the most robust and modernised systems and infrastructure, that could take us to a new level,” she said.

“If you talk about ideas and plans and creativity and innovation, you could find that from our team. Because we are young people, we understand what is required to move an island’s development forward, and that is what we are intent on realising.”

She added, “We are pushing ahead. We are changing the look and feel of Scarborough, but in a way that captures the essence of what we have been selling, which is Live the Culture Tobago Style, and Clean, Green, Safe and Serene.
