Rehabilitation work planned for Junction corridor

Published:Saturday | September 16, 2017 | 4:37 PM

The Junction corridor which links Kingston and St Andrew with the eastern parishes of St Mary and Portland is to undergo major rehabilitation work.

The first phase of the project is set to start next month after Prime Minister Andrew Holness signed a contract with Surrey Paving and Aggregates Limited in a ceremony at Jamaica House yesterday.

The work will be solely financed by the government under its Roads Rehabilitation Programme.

Phase one will cover the Tom’s River to Agualta Vale area and includes river training, patching and drain improvement.

It is expected to be completed in 14 months.

Holness says the Junction corridor selected itself for repair and adds that his administration is committed to infrastructure development and improving connectivity among major hubs in the country.
