Jamaican North-South Highway Project to Be Completed in 2016

SAN JUAN – Jamaica’s government said Friday that Highway 2000, a $600 million road project, would be completed in 2016.

The highway will connect the northern tourist town of Ocho Rios with Kingston, on the island’s southeastern coast, the government said in a statement, adding that it is being completed in sections.

The Linstead to Moneague central segment opened in August 2014, while the Caymanas (a locality just west of Kingston) to Linstead segment is more than 80 percent complete and is to be concluded by the first quarter of 2016.

Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Simpson-Miller toured that latter section of the highway and said she was pleased with the progress of the project, which has created more than 1,000 jobs.

Highway 2000, a public-private partnership between the Jamaican government and China Harbour Engineering Co., will cover a distance of 66 kilometers (41 miles).

The road connecting Ocho Rios to Moneague also is to be completed next year.
