Prime Minister Opens Angels to Linstead Section of North-South Highway

Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller on Thursday, February 4, 2016 symbolically opened the section of the North-South Highway from Angels, just outside Spanish Town, to Linstead in St. Catherine, to join the Mount Rosser Bypass leg opened last year which now ends in Moneague. Travel on the newly opened section will be free of cost for one month.

The opening of the Angels to Linstead leg of the highway provides Jamaicans with the option of bypassing the often dangerous Bog Walk Gorge, which, for centuries has been the main thoroughfare for persons travelling from Kingston to the North Coast.
