Falmouth to undergo major PAJ-funded beautification project
The town of Falmouth in Trelawny is to benefit from a major beautification and upgrading project to be carried out by the Port Authority of Jamaica (PAJ).
The project, for which a budget is being finalised, is intended to enhance the town’s image as a major cruise shipping port.
Manager of the Falmouth Cruise Ship Terminal, Mark Hylton, said the scope of works entails cleaning and beautification, social and community outreach, and the enforcement of public-order statutes.
He said the project area would include Falmouth Street, from the intersection with Seaboard Street to the Lower Parade Street, and Water Square.
“The designated areas will be cleaned, washed and the curb walls repainted. The garden in Water Square will be landscaped and plants replaced. Planters (flower containers) along Falmouth Street and Lower Harbour Lane will be repaired and the plants replaced. Additionally, missing pavers will be replaced,” Hylton outlined.
The work, he added, is expected to be completed before the end of 2016.
