Palisadoes is the thin strip of land that connects the airport to mainland. We would loose access to the airport if the Palisadoes was breached.

Highway 2000 May Pen Leg opened

August 15, 2012

KINGSTON, Jamaica - The May Pen leg of the Highway 2000 was opened to vehicular traffic today at approximately 1:00pm.

This new 10.5 kilometre stretch of Highway 2000 east-west, is expected to cut the travel time from Sandy Bay to May Pen by at least two thirds from the current 18 minutes to only six minutes driving at the permitted speed, the administrators said .

Thanks! There were plans to build a bridge across the Kingston harbour to provide an alternate route to the Palisadoes roadway, but i'm not sure if those plans are still in the pipeline. Our overall infrastructure is improving, but we have to invest in excess of US$500 million on roads and bridges so as to reduce the impact of natural disasters on Jamaica's infrastructure.

Dec 17 deadline for Portmore toll road works completion


MAINTENANCE work currently being done on the Portmore toll road will be complete in another month, Jamaican Infrastructure Operator Ltd (JIO) has said.

JIO General Manager Jean-François Doreau told the Jamaica Observer that the works are scheduled to end on December 17.

"We are doing the work in phases to avoid or to limit the inconvenience to our customers, so the Fort Augusta (section) remains open to our customers," he said.

The work, which has reduced traffic near the toll booth from six lanes to two, was necessitated by "settling" to the depth of about 15 cm in sections of the road, Doreau said. To avoid similar problems in the future, JIO is using foam to underlay the asphalt.

"That (the settling) caused some unevenness in the road. It was not major, and not everyone noticed. By Jamaican standards, we could have overlooked it, but we didn't," he said, referencing the state of many locally constructed roads which are in despair and on which little or no routine maintenance is done.

Doreau said the company is contractually bound to undertake maintenance of the tolled highway — a 230-km network of roads which when complete will link Kingston in the east to Montego Bay in the west and to St Ann in the north-east — every seven to 10 years. He added, however, that routine works may be necessary outside the 7-10-year period.

"The highway is ageing, though it may not appear so, so maintenance is necessary. Every now and then you will see us working on different sections," he said.

"The current works are similar to those done on the bridge in 2010," Doreau pointed out.
