After an outcry over the disruption caused by major road work in the corporate area, Prime Minister Andrew Holness says the public can expect the road construction projects to intensify as the government moves to complete the work ahead of the back to school season.
Speaking at the opening of the George River Bridge in Violet Banks, St. Andrew, Mr. Holness announced that no new road projects will begin in Kingston.
The Constant Spring Road improvement project, part of the government’s legacy project resumed last week. It was slated to be completed by August 16. The National Works Agency (NWA) has since advised motorists to expect delays as lanes would be merged to accommodate the completion of the road work.
Others major projects in Kingston include the Mandela Highway realignment and reconstruction project, the Hagley Park road improvement project and the Three Miles road construction project; which have all missed their deadlines.
The Prime Minister while acknowledging the growing level of fatigue cause by the delayed road works says the public should expect improved supervision of projects by the NWA.
