Azan, NWA chief to tour north/south leg of Highway 2000
KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Minister of State in the Ministry of Transport, Works & Housing, Richard Azan and the chief executive officer of the National Works Agency, E G Hunter, are scheduled to tour the North/South link of Highway 2000 on Friday.
The tour is to provide a first-hand view of the progress of works along this road construction project, an advisory from the National Works Agency said Thursday.
The multibillion-dollar north/south link of Highway 2000, which links Caymanas in St Catherine to Ocho Rios in St Ann, is expected to be completed in 2016.
The project has been divided into three sections, the NWA said. Section one of the project spans Caymanas to Mount Rosser, section two is confined to the Mount Rosser Bypass and section three covers Moneague to Ocho Rios.
