Guam – GBB’s Principal Associate David Manning says construction on the Layon Landfill is on track and he does not expect some reported delays in bridge and road projects to off-set the timetable
The DPW Weekly Progress Report filed with the District Court Monday says that progress on the Ylig Bridge and Route 4 to Route 17 projects are on schedule. And despite some delays on the Togcha and Talafofo Bridge projects they should be open to “fully loaded transfer trucks in a southbound direction” by the August opening of the new landfill.
There has also been some concern that the Southern Wastewater Treatment plant may not be ready to handle the leachate from the Layon waste cells in time, but in an email to K-57’s Ray Gibson Manning said “The construction on the landfill is on schedule and we do not anticipate any delays in connection with the Inarajan Wastewater Treatment Plant. “
He acknowledged that the “schedule for the bridge projects is tight,” but he cited DPW’s report filed Monday “assuring the Court that the projects are on schedule.”
“We expect to open the Layon Landfill as planned this summer,” said Manning.
