Karim: Car-racers to get 65 acres of land
Government has allocated 65 acres of land, between Waterloo and Orange Valley, for the construction of an international-standard auto-sport complex to house drag- racing, circuit-racing, Solodex, carting and all other forms of motor sports. This was confirmed yesterday by Tertiary Education Minister Fazal Karim.
Speaking at the opening of the accommodation for University of the West Indies (UWI) medical students at the San Fernando General Hospital yesterday, Karim said: “We will be trying our best to get our young people off our streets.” He also said Government planned to transform Waterloo into the hub of ship-building and maritime training.
A tourist information centre and a weather station would be established there, Karim said. He said the 12 primary schools and eight secondary schools in Waterloo would use and be the custodians of that weather station. He also said Dr Roger Pulwarty, who won a Nobel Prize for his work on climate change, with specific reference to El Niño, will assist in holding climatological courses through UTT at Waterloo.
Pulwarty is a lecturer at the University of the West Indies’ Cave Hill Campus, Barbados, and also at the University of Colorado.
