COASTAL PROTECTION UNIT OF

THE MINISTRY OF WORKS AND TRANSPORT

 TO TACKLE EROSION AT QUINAM BEACH AND OTHER PRIORITY SITES


The Ministry of Works and Transport (MOWT) is aware of the extensive coastal erosion occurring at Quinam Beach and has been actively monitoring several priority sites across Trinidad via its Coastal Protection Unit.

The Ministry’s Critical Coastal Protection Programme has in fact earmarked Quinam Beach along with Cocos Bay (Manzanilla), Cap de Ville and Sans Souci for stabilization works in fiscal year 2016/2017.

The projects and initiatives under the Critical Coastal Protection Programme are closely aligned with the Ministry’s mandate for the management of the vulnerabilities and physical impacts due to coastal erosion. As such, the Ministry will continue working with all its stakeholders, including the Siparia Regional Corporation (with direct responsibility for management of the Quinam Beach Facility) towards accomplishing this mandate.

For further information on the Quinam Coastal Protection Works and other projects under the Critical Coastal Protection Programme kindly contact the Corporate Communications Unit at 625-3091 or visit our website at www.mowt.gov.tt
