MINISTER OF Transport, Works and Housing, Dr Omar Davies, yesterday expressed outrage at the robbery of a public official at the Spanish Town exit of Highway 2000 on Friday.
The minister said he was committed to working with the Ministry of National Security, the Jamaica Constabulary Force, and other relevant authorities in ensuring that the highway is safe and secure for users. He also said he was concerned that persons with criminal intent have sought to prey on unsuspecting females who have to use the roads to go about their legitimate business.
Davies called upon motorists to assist in the elimination of crime against persons, especially women.
In the meantime, Davies said he had been in contact with Peter Bunting, minister of national security, and they would be meeting to discuss plans to improve security on the highway.
