Minister without portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation Hon Dr Horace Chang has announced plans to improve traffic management in the city of Montego Bay.

Speaking during a press conference at the Office of the Prime Minister's western offices in Montego Bay last Wednesday, Chang said the measures include repairing electronic traffic signals, reconfiguring some roadways, and the upgrading of road surfaces.

He said that these measures would be complemented by increased enforcement by the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) and the Transport Authority.

Chang said the aim is to have aspects of the plan implemented before the end of the financial year.

He noted that the traffic problem in Montego Bay is the result of improper planning, especially in the area of housing developments.
