Member of Parliament for North Clarendon Horace Dalley has appealed for calm amid reports of a planned protest by taxi operators over poor road conditions in his constituency on the start of the new school year.
In a media release today, Dalley said information has surfaced that taxi-drivers are planning to block roads in the Brandon Hill area, leading to Clarendon College and the Johns Hall main road, leading to the Edwin Allen High School.
While acknowledging the deplorable conditions of the roads highlighted, the MP says the Brandon Hill and Johns Hall main roads are slated for major repairs in the next financial year.
He says preliminary estimates show a repair bill of approximately $650 million for the Brandon Hill main road and $250 million for the Johns Hall road.
Dalley points out that he has had discussions with the National Works Agency for remedial repairs to be carried out in the interim to ease the discomfort of residents.
