Jamaica Gleaner - - INTERNATIONAL NEWS -

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.
