WATCH: Holness checks on progress of major Corporate Area road works
Prime Minister Andrew Holness says he expects that by the beginning of the new school year early in September, the traffic problems that are affecting sections of the Corporate Area will be largely resolved.
Holness made the comments on Sunday during a progress tour of major road projects across the capital city with senior representatives of the National Works Agency (NWA) and project contractors, China Habour Engineering Company (CHEC).
"I expect by back to school in September, the traffic situation will be significantly resolved,” the prime minister said.
On the tour, he covered sections of Mandela Highway, Constant Spring Road, Barbican Road, South Camp Road and Hagley Park Road.
The prime minister said he is happy that work is progressing very well, and varying levels of vehicular access have been and will be in place on the affected roadways.
"With these kinds of road infrastructure we must ensure a holistic kind of development to facilitate the ease of doing business within the Corporate Area. Truly, a new Jamaica is emerging before our very eyes,” the prime minister said.
