RoyalGazette reports from Bermuda a 100-unit modular housing project will replace 140 year-old United Kingdom-designed barrack style housing if the Progressive Labour Party has its way. The old units are beyond repair with termites, asbestos, leaky pipes, mould, and structural problems. The $36 million project will provide low cost housing for Dockyard, an area for people of very modest means, and includes demolition of existing units. Although a supplier was not specified to MHProNews.com, the new modular housing will come from the U.S., but will provide 100 local jobs at the construction end. Currently, the project is a slight bone of contention between two political parties in an election year: Progressive Labour Party and One Bermuda Alliance (OBA).
