Constant Spring Market to be sold
The Constant Spring Market is to be sold to facilitate the expansion of the Constant Spring Road corridor.
A private valuation of the property puts the value of the market at $270 million while the public valuation is $186 million.
The Government will spend approximately $2.4 billion (US$19 million) under the Major Infrastructure Development Programme (MIDP) to widen and improve Constant Spring Road in St Andrew.
The four-kilometre thoroughfare runs from Norbrook Drive to Red Hills Road/Eastwood Park Road intersection.
The works include widening of the road from two to four lanes, improved traffic management, upgrading of stormwater drainage, and construction of two additional bus bays at the transportation terminal in Manor Park, St Andrew.
