Default St Thomas residents exhale

AFTER years of promises and the announcement of a number of grand schemes, residents of St Thomas yesterday witnessed a major step in the latest plan for the old Goodyear Tyre factory and applauded wildly as Prime Minister Andrew Holness vowed that this time there will be no false start.

At the ground breaking for the long-planned Morant Bay Urban Centre, Holness told the large crowd that his administration is committed to the project which will be undertaken by China Harbour Engineering Company at a cost of approximately $6.5 billion.

“The parish of St Thomas has been left behind since the abolition of slavery. Some believe it has been given a bad deal for its part in our fight for freedom and self-government.

“It has too often been referred to as the 'forgotten parish', but St Thomas historic importance to the struggles of our nation cannot be overstated and it is about time that the parish is recognised and get the attention it deserves,” said Holness.

He said the Government is embarking on a number of mega-projects, in the next three to five years, which will impact the lives of the people of St Thomas.

These include the expansion of the Norman Manley International Airport, the installation of a state-of-the-art floating barge and supporting facilities for the docking of cruise ships in Port Royal, and the construction of a four-lane highway from Harbour View, St Andrew to Yallahs, St Thomas, and the expansion of the main road from Yallahs to Port Antonio.
