The Government has signed a US$2.7 million contract with American company, Stanley Consultants Inc., for the implementation of a feasibility study and preliminary design for the Southern Coastal Highway Improvement Project.
The study, which is being funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), is expected to be completed in one year. It will assess and design the preferred alignment of the proposed South Coast highway from Port Antonio to Habour View (Phase I) and Mandeville to Negril (Phase II).
