PM says keen attention will be given to rehabilitation works to take place along Fairfield to Point/Retirement to Hurlock roadway in St. James
Prime Minister Andrew Holness says keen attention will be given to rehabilitation works to take place along the Fairfield to Point/Retirement to Hurlock roadway in St. James.
A contract for the road works was signed yesterday (October 24).
Residents blocked the road over the deplorable condition, even as the contract was being signed.
This is the third phase of rehabilitation, which will address 1.8 kilometres of the roadway, at a cost of $165 million.
The project is funded by the National Works Agency and the Tourism Enhancement Fund.
The National Works Agency said the road is the gateway to upper St. James, as well as one of the main arterial links from St. Elizabeth.
Prime Minister Andrew Holness said the road is being built according to its use.
He urged the contractor to take pride in the road work and ensure that it is done properly.
