Traffic pile-up in Porus amid road repair

MANCHESTER , Jamaica — There is now a pile-up of traffic on the Porus to Scott’s Pass main road near the Clarendon/Manchester border resulting from road repairs being undertaken on the thoroughfare.

For months the main road has been in a deplorable condition resulting in residents, motorists, and politicians calling for urgent attention to be placed on rehabilitating the roadway.

The crucial corridors link Mandeville and its environs to points east.
