The Mocho to Arcadia main road in South St James is to undergo repairs at a cost of $83.9 million.

In addition to a double layer of asphalt being laid on the roadway, several drains will be repaired or built to ensure that surface water is controlled.

Speaking at the signing ceremony at the Mocho Community Centre, Minister of State in the Ministry of Transport and Works, Richard Azan, said the project, which is being financed by the Tourism Enhancement Fund, should begin within two weeks.

He says it’s to be completed within four months.

Azan says the rehabilitated roadway will benefit farmers, commuters, students and visitors who travel through the communities to tourist attractions in neighbouring St Elizabeth.

He s also imploring residents of the area to support the contractor so the work can be completed on time and within budget.

Azan further says farmers should exercise caution when configuring their farms to ensure they do not deliberately send surface water onto the roadway.
