Press Release

Contract for Bellefield Landing Civilian Safety (Boat Slips) Project Signed


The Turks and Caicos Islands Government and the Ports Authority of the Turks and Caicos Islands are pleased to announce the signing of the contract (Tender Reference TR 21/37, Contract Number TCIPA 05/21) with Coastal and Marine Design Build Ltd. for the construction and installation of modern boat slips at Bellefield Landing, North Caicos.


The project commences immediately and will provide a new dock for the ferry services and slips to berth ten vessels, with lengths up to 50 feet. The new boat slips will consist of a floating dock with concrete decking, polythene floats, and an aluminum frame that will replace makeshift wooden boat slips currently in use at the port facility. The new boat slips will improve the safety of residents who travel to Providenciales through the port and as well as tourists who visit North Caicos and Middle Caicos from Providenciales.

The construction of the modern boat slips complements several other projects that the Ports Authority is currently implementing at Bellefield Landing: Construction of Port Office/Welcome Center and Dredging of Port Turning Basin and Bellefield Landing Navigation Channels.


The project supports the goal of promoting prosperity and sustainable livelihood in North Caicos and Middle Caicos. This project is consistent with several goals of The People’s Plan for Progress:- Transforming TCI through Inclusive Growth, particularly Goal 9: Resilient Infrastructure, Innovation and Industry and Goal 11: Sustainable, Inclusive Safe, and Resilient Communities; as well as Goal 3 (Resilient Ports) of the Ports Authority Strategic Plan (2019-2022/3).
