The Grand Opening of Tortola Pier Park has been postponed until February 16, 2016.

According to the Minister for Communications and Works, Honourable Mark Vanterpool, the event has been postponed to allow further construction works to take place and to accommodate more stores for a greater shopping experience.

The project is approximately 80-85 percent complete. However, as previously projected, it would have made its mark of being 90 percent complete on the due date of the grand opening.

Although the festive occasion has been postponed, Disney will make its inaugural call to the port of Road Town tomorrow.

Honourable Vanterpool said, “We are expecting the Disney Ships in as of tomorrow, December 22, when the Disney Fantasy will make its inaugural call and the Disney Wonder on January 9, 2016.”

During this holiday season, the public is encouraged to “Buy BVI” and support the shops that are currently providing business in the Tortola Pier Park.

The Minister of Communications and Works will make an official statement at the Fifth Sitting of the First Session of the Third House of Assembly this morning.

The Ministry of Communications and Works is committed to providing a sound infrastructure for the Territory and is ensuring an increase in business opportunities through this historical project.
