The old bus depot in Kingston is expected to get airtight walls and barriers installed while asbestos ridden roofing is being removed at the start of the new year.

The upper hall will reportedly be closed for the duration of approximately five weeks  while the cement roof sheeting is removed. Roof replacement will be concluded towards the end of  April of next year.

The bus depot markets will continue to be in operation while the work is being conducted, but stallholders will move from the upperdeck to the Fitter’s Workshop and northern Annexe which is now known as the Lakeside gallery.

Land Development Agency chief executive David Dawes revealed that the project is expected to cost $2.64 million and will require extra work to be done such as demolishing the nearby asbestos-contaminated former morgue.  The land from the demolition is expected to be used for residential purposes.

An asbestos assessor will oversee the removal while bus depot will remain closed to the public.

All the replacements will be installed prior to the actual removal of the asbestos.  Air-monitoring equipment will be put into place in order to keep an eye on the air quality while the asbestos is being removed.
