Jamaica: Millions procured for road repairs, traffic management in Manchester

Minister without portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Everald Warmington, has confirmed a multimillion-dollar road-repair project for three major roadways and the implementation of new traffic management systems in central Manchester, which are set to begin in the coming weeks.

The minister, who toured sections of the constituency where the repairs will be carried out, said $60 million has already been allocated for that part of the project.

The roads to be rehabilitated include Williamsfield to Cumberland, Royal Flat to Old England, and sections of Mandeville heading up to Rudd’s Corner.

He said these allocations are not for the routine quarterly maintenance, but were selected based on Manchester Central Member of Parliament (MP) Rhoda Crawford’s priority list.
