What are the trucks seen in those pictures (the white cement mixer and yellow tipper)? The cabs are obviously like those MAN used to use (before the TG series they introduced about 10 years ago), but it's a different brand name.

I'm not sure what brand trucks are they, but these trucks are generally seen on CHEC's (China Harbour Engineering Company's) construction sites. China HArbour Engineering Company (CHEC) is the sole contractor and financier of the "north south link" phase of the highway 2000. CHEC's parent ccompany is China Communications Construction Company (CCCC), they are major investors and contractor in Jamaican roads and bridges...their overall plan is to invest US $1.5 billion dollars in a transshipment port and logistics park. The current highway investment is valued at over US $ 700 million. In excess of US $100 million is being repaid to government as the previous contractor was unable to complete the project. US $610 million is being spent on over 60km of 4-lane expressway. It is being completed in phases. The first phase will be completed somtime next year...the rest should be completed in early to mid 2016.

Work Resumes On Highway 2000 North-South Link

Published: Wednesday | November 27, 2013



Jermaine Francis, Staff Reporter

Plagued by contractual issues and a two-year suspension, work on the North-South link of Highway 2000 has resumed with a completion date slated for 2016.

Ivan Anderson, managing director of the National Road Operating and Constructing Company, told The Gleaner yesterday that since this October, work has been ongoing on the first and third legs of the highway.

"Work on the first segment of the highway, which connects Caymanas to Linstead, started in October and work on the third segment, from Moneague to Ocho Rios, started in November," Anderson said.

However, this is over three months behind the previously scheduled dates for the start of the first and third segments of the roadway.

The first segment was scheduled to start in May, while the second section was to have begun in June with their expected completion dates in 2015.

But Anderson said the new completion date for these segments is 2016.

"The section in the middle, (Linstead to Moneague) started in January, so we are on target to meet the May 2014 deadline, and the other sections should be completed by January 2016," he said.

Noting that he could not say how much was being spent on each leg of the project, Anderson said it was still within the almost US$600-million budget.

He said the project was still being funded solely by China Harbour Engineering Company.

Th North-South link of Highway 2000 is expected to reduce travel time between Kingston and Ocho Rios, St Ann, to some 45 minutes.

China Harbour 'working hard' to meet August 6 highway deadline

Friday, May 02, 2014 | 12:16 PM

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- New president of China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC), Lin Yichong, on Thursday told Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller that his group is "working hard" to meet the August 6 deadline for the opening of the first leg of the North/South Highway project.

Lin paid a courtesy visit to Simpson Miller at the Office of the Prime Minister.

Minister of transport, works and housing, Dr Omar Davies, and Dr Morais Guy, minister without portfolio in the ministry of transport, works and housing shared in the occasion.

China Harbour had promised to complete the first leg of the project (the Mount Rosser Bypass) by Independence Day, 2014.

Progress on the road project hit a snag after approximately 180 workers went on strike late March regarding representational rights, salary and safety issues. They returned to work on April 3 after agreements were reached with China Harbour.

Simpson Miller Thursday welcomed the update on the deadline saying that she is looking forward to the opening "as this particular project will be a major contribution to the Government’s growth and development agenda".

PM Expresses Appreciation for Work on North-South Highway

By Garfield L. Angus May 21, 2014



Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, has expressed appreciation for the hard work of the hundreds of workers employed in constructing the Linstead to Moneague leg of the North-South Highway, scheduled for opening in early August.

Mrs. Simpson Miller, who was on a tour of the project on Tuesday, May 20, said based on what she saw, when the road is completed, Jamaica, “in this section will look like any first world country.”

“I am very pleased that it will be completed for the August opening and the other areas will be completed by 2016,” the Prime Minister added.


She was accompanied on the tour by Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Jamaica, His Excellency, Dong Xiaojun; State Minister in the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing, Hon. Richard Azan; and officials of China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC), contractors for the highway.

The North-South section of Highway 2000 will be 66 kilometres long and allow motorists to travel from Kingston to the resort town of Ocho Rios in less than an hour.

Execution of the US$600 project is being done through a public-private partnership (PPP) agreement between the Jamaican Government and CHEC, and is being undertaken in three sections.

Contractors Putting Final Touches on Mount Rosser Bypass

Contractors are putting the finishing touches on the Mount Rosser bypass to facilitate its official opening on August 5.

“The contractors are…doing clean-up work, installing signs, and doing the final road markings,” Managing Director of the National Road Operating and Construction Company (NROCC), Ivan Anderson, told JIS News. Motorists will travel toll free for one month, from August 5 to September 5.

The roadway, which extends from Linstead in St. Catherine to Moneague in St. Ann, is the first of the three legs of the North-South link of Highway 2000 to be completed. The other legs, from Caymanas to Linstead, and Moneague to Ocho Rios, are scheduled to be completed by 2016.

The NROCC head told JIS News that the process of land acquisition for the project has been “smooth”. Approximately 360 parcels of land were purchased, with 99 per cent of the sales already finalised, which includes about 139 houses or structures along the alignment.

North-South Highway Opens Today

Published: Tuesday | August 5, 2014



Daraine Luton, Senior Staff Reporter

THE UNPREDICTABILITY of travel between Kingston and Ocho Rios, St Ann, has been cured with the completion of a toll road that will enable commuters to avoid the winding Mount Rosser road which connects Ewarton in St Catherine to Moneague in the Garden Parish.

More than four years after the roadway was originally slated to be completed, the Mount Rosser bypass is to open its corridors today, welcoming motorists who desire the 15-minute sprint instead of a journey that sometimes takes several hours in the event of crawling trucks and vehicle malfunctions.

"You can now plan your travel," said Dr Omar Davies, the minister of transport, works and housing, who, along with Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, will be opening the road today.

The minister said that when the entire north-south link of the highway is completed in 2016, it will reduce travel time from Kingston to Ocho Rios by approximately one hour and 15 minutes. It is estimated that travel time from Kingston to Ocho Rios now is about two hours.

China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC), the entity which is undertaking the project, has not indicated how much it will cost to use the toll road. Jennifer Armond, communications manager, CHEC Americas, said yesterday that the public will be able to use it for one month, starting tomorrow, without charge.
