The 1.9-kilometre West Road, which serves residents of Cobbla and adjacent communities in North East Manchester, has been rehabilitated by the Ministry of Transport, Works, and Housing, at a cost of $6.5 million.

The road was symbolically re-opened by Transport, Works and Housing State Minister, Richard Azan, on Thursday.

The road, which had deteriorated extensively, was repaired under Phase Four of the Jamaica Emergency Employment Programme (JEEP).

The project included paving of the roadway and construction of drains and verges.

The works ministry says it complements similar works carried out on other roads in the constituency and wider parish, under various programmes administered by several agencies, including the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF).
