Parish Council to address concerns surrounding Sandy Bay Highway
Chairman of the Clarendon Parish Council, Scean Barneswell, says, steps are to be taken to address concerns expressed by some motorists, about the Sandy Bay leg of Highway 2000 in the parish.
Mr. Barneswell was speaking with the RJR News Centre following a tour of the road on Wednesday, with Junior Minister in the Ministry of Transport, Richard Azan.
He said only one thing needs to be done, for adjustments to the Toll Road to get underway.
“What needs for the work to get started is just someone to give approval for the costing to put in the ramp so that persons from Longville Park can enter the highway and go to May Pen to do business …..I think that’s the main issue that someone needs to give the final approval to get both ramps in place” he said.
Earlier this week, Mr. Barneswell reported that motorists from the communities of Longsville Park and Sandy Bay have been complaining, that they do not have access to the super roadway, to travel to the town of May Pen.
The highway is due to be declared open next Wednesday, August 15.
