ST JAMES, Jamaica — The St James Municipal Corporation plans to spend approximately $20 million on a major road rehabilitation programme across the parish within the next five weeks.

In making the disclosure, Montego Bay's Mayor, and Chairman of the St James Municipal Corporation, Councillor Homer Davis said the corporation plans to aggressively tackle the rehabilitation of these roads have been impacted by bad weather condition.

The roads which are down for major improvement works include the Fairfield Avenue, which leads to the Irwin High School; the Mount Salem Main Road; sections of Pitfour Gardens Housing Scheme in Granville; the Granville main road; the Roehampton main road; Park Avenue and Mavis Craig Road; McLeod Road in Catadupa; Lima Road; Hampton Road; Princess Street in downtown Montego Bay; Francis Issabella Road in Mount Salem; Croatia Mountain in Cambridge; and Pleasant View Road in Salt Spring.

Davis said once the weather conditions improve, his team is ready to start the process of patching and resurfacing to ensure that by the turn of the upcoming festive season, residents of the parish will have much improved roads on which to travel.
