MONTEGO BAY, St James — The St James Municipal Corporation has undertaken a major sidewalk improvement project along Sunset Boulevard in the resort city of Montego Bay.

The street, which will shortly be renamed the Godfrey Dyer Boulevard in honour of businessman and chairman of Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF), Godfrey Dyer, will give pedestrians and motorists a better experience while travelling along the road, the corporation said.

The project, which will cover roughly 2,500 metres, spans Sunset Boulevard from the round-about of the Sangster International Airport to the intersection of Jimmy Cliff Boulevard.

Mayor of Montego Bay Councillor Homer Davis, in reflecting on the initiative, said the project which will be completed in short order, will have a profound impact on the lives of individuals who traverse the busy thoroughfare, heading to or from the Sangster International Airport, as well as those who use the area for jogging.

“Commuters who utilise this Sunset Boulevard, which will soon be renamed Godfrey Dyer Boulevard, will benefit greatly from the project in terms of providing another level of safety for them. Pedestrians, in particular, will experience better ease of access especially when undertaking their fitness activities,” the mayor stated.

“Rehabilitation of the sidewalks in the city is crucial for the safety and mobility of our citizens. The aim is to prevent accidents, but the sidewalks also add uniformity to our surroundings.”
