Negril is a small (pop. 3,000) but widely dispersed beach resort town located across parts of two Jamaican parishes, Westmoreland and Hanover.
Negril is just about one hour and fifteen minutes drive from Sir Donald Sangster International Airport, in Montego Bay. Westmoreland is the westernmost parish in Jamaica, located on the south side of the island. Downtown Negril, the West End cliff resorts to the south of downtown, and the southern portion of the so-called "seven mile (11 km) beach" are in Westmoreland. The beach's length is the stuff of legends—it is actually little more than four miles in length, but tourists and travel writers insist on the "seven-mile" label.[citation needed] The northernmost resorts on the beach are in Hanover Parish. The nearest large town is Savanna-la-Mar, the capital of Westmoreland Parish.

Gov't moves to improve road safety in Negril

NEGRIL, Westmoreland — The Government is taking a major step towards improving the safety of road users in the busy resort town of Negril with the implementation of the first phase of a $19 million programme now being undertaken by the National Works Agency (NWA).

The initiative is aimed primarily at improving the safety of all road users who traverse the Norman Manley Boulevard.

The Norman Manley Boulevard is a two-lane corridor located in the heart of Negril's tourism district, which boasts seven miles of white sand beaches, unique accommodations, and other tourist attractions. The roadway consists of two travel lanes and is the main arterial link to the numerous accommodations and other businesses which operate along the strip.

The roadway, however, has been a cause of concern in recent years due to the high incidence of traffic accidents. It is against this background that the government has implemented a multi-faceted plan, aimed at reducing vehicular speeds, thereby reducing the probability of collisions and increasing pedestrian safety.
