Works Agency CEO defends execution of works being carried out on Southern Highway Improvement Project
Chief Executive Officer of the National Works Agency, E.G Hunter is defending the execution of works being carried out on the Southern Highway Improvement Project.
This as he stresses that the works are being executed in full compliance with first-world standards.
Speaking at Jamaica House this morning (July 12), Mr Hunter sought to dispel the notion that projects undertaken by local contractors are of a lesser standard.
He said this was not so of the South Highway Project, which is being done in adherence to all fiduciary requirements.
Mr Hunter noted, however, that there are aspects of the project which could be handled better.
This week, Prime Minister Andrew Holness gave Mr Hunter direct supervision of the Southern Highway Improvement Project to ensure timely completion.
This amid several incidents, including broken water mains and dust nuisance, which have caused inconveniences for residents and commuters.
