Government to invest $60M for Lethem airstrip expansion

Government is planning to invest $60M to expand the Lethem airstrip this year, according to Minister of Public Works and Transport Robeson Benn. He said the designs will be done this year and hopefully there would be a public/private partnership established to build a terminal at the airstrip. 

 Noting the public/private partnership at Ogle Airport, Benn cited that as a good example of a collective effort which develops travel and regional tourism activities.

He said Government has spent close to $1B in air traffic control systems which include radios and specialized tracking equipment amongst other items.
