ST ANN, Jamaica — The Urban Development Corporation (UDC) says all efforts will be made to minimise disruptions to Main Street in Ocho Rios, St Ann as improvement works begin on Monday during the busy tourist season.

According to the UDC, the road which serves as the major thoroughfare through the resort town is being upgraded through the Ocho Rios Main Street Improvement Project, which forms a part of the overall multi-billion dollar redevelopment programme for the town.

The corporation added that the eight-month project which is valued at J$160 million will see various government agencies collaborating in this phase extending for 400 metres from the Island Village Complex to the Ocean Village Shopping Centre.

“The works will include upgrading and repaving of the road, upgrading of drainage and water mains, landscaping works and widening of sidewalks,” UDC explained.

The Ocho Rios Main Street Improvement Project is funded by the Tourism Enhancement Fund with Chin's Construction Limited as contractors.
