Suggestions have not yet been translated into concrete. "The government has approved in principle the recommendations made by the consultants," said Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Utilities, Rashid Beebeejaun in a written tabled in Parliament in weekend parliamentary answer. This is in response to an inquiry of the President of Socialist Movement Activist, Showkutally Soodhun.
In fact, says the see-PM in response, a high level commitee chaired by his ministry and also including officials from the Ministry of Agro Industry and the Office of the Attorney General, was composed. They study how to be put into practice to formulate an implementation of the proposed reforms program by Singaporeans. Their plan is to nine points and includes, among other things, the merger of the Central Water Authority, the Wastewater Management Authority and the Irrigation Authority.
As the replacement of hundreds of miles of worn and pierced the CWA pipes, the first phase will soon be engaged. It touches a part of the network that leads to the reservoir Mare aux Vacoas.
Again, these are the consultants from Singapore who have been approached to do the job. Project management asked of them. For now, they have not yet received their confirmation letter of the contract.
