Water Woes in Kingston and St. Andrew to ease soon

The Spanish Town Road Potable Water Transmissions Main Project will bring approximately 15 million gallons of water into Kingston & St. Andrew.

This is expected to signifcantly improve water supply and reliability to several communities along Spanish Town Road and in Central and Downtown Kingston.

The $2.4 billion project involves the installation of new mains along the Mandela Highway and Spanish Town Road.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness toured the project on Friday and says this investment is expected to last over 50 years.

Mr Holness explains that distribution mains have been laid on both sides of the road, to facilitate connections by the National Water Commission.

The Prime Minister has also promised significant improvements to Spanish Town Road.

It has been a sore point for motorists, who have had to deal with poor road surfaces due to the major pipe laying works.

With the pipe laying now complete, Prime Minister Holness says the focus will now be on improving the infrastructure in the area.
