The operators of the May Pen leg of Highway 2000 are to undertake a feasibility study to determine if an access point can be introduced for residents of Sandy Bay, Clarendon.
TransJamaican Highway, the developers of Highway 2000, reportedly gave the commitment today at a meeting involving Transport Minister, Dr. Omar Davies, Member of Parliament for South East Clarendon, Ruddy Spencer, community leaders and representatives of some agencies under the transport ministry.
The meeting was called to discuss concerns that several communities do not have access to the roadway especially at Sandy Bay.
The Transport Minister said in addition to the feasibility study by TransJamaican Highway, he has directed the National Works Agency to assist with the assessment of problems related to the project so that the appropriate actions can be taken.
Davies said he expects a report within two weeks.
Meanwhile, Davies said the contractor, Bouygues, has committed to maintaining two traffic wardens at the entrance and exit of the Highway to ensure the safety of children crossing at Curartoe Hill especially during school hours.
