Jamaica: Big plans for easier access into and out of Portmore via Mandela H’way

The Government has instructed the National Works Agency (NWA) to develop on a concept for easier access into and out of Portmore using the Mandela Highway.

This is to involve a project being done in two phases, including a 1.7-kilometre-long, two-lane ramp from Mandela Highway to George Lee Boulevard, inclusive of:

  1. A new 120-metre-long bridge across the Rio Cobre.
  2. New traffic signals at the Dyke Road/Gregory Park main road junction.
  3. Replacement of the Dyke Road/George Lee Boulevard roundabout with traffic signals
  4. Widening of the Dyke Road to accommodate three lanes between George Lee Boulevard and Gregory Park.
  5. And street lighting, road markings and signage.

In making his contribution to the 2021-2222 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on May 5, Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Everald Warmington, said the planned measures are to be delivered under phase one of the project.
