Construction on National Carnival and Entertainment Centre to start in March 2010

Although I am a bit skeptical to believe the unnamed "government source" who revealed to the Trinidad Express that work is expected to start on the National Carnival and Entertainment Centre in March, I can only hope that some official will announce exactly when construction is due to commence and end.

The name of the building has changed, the proposed name initially was the National Carnival and ARTS Centre, and I am going to guess that the design will change as well. This was the previous artist rendering:

And the proposed stage for masqueraders with seating capacity for 15,000 spectators.

One can live in hope that a Carnival Stage is looming somewhere in the future right?

So, tell me are you in favour of the return of the stage? Remember the wait to enter the Savannah, bands at a standstill on Charlotte Street for hours on end? Do you think that this problem will be alleviated with the construction of the National Carnival Centre? And finally what are the benefits of mas on the road, is it really "mas on the move"?

Thoughts, opinions, comments.. all welcomed.
