The Jamaica Environment Trust’s (JET’s) office at 123 Constant Spring Road continues to be disrupted by road construction taking place on the thoroughfare. Intermittent phone and internet services have been compounded by a disruption in piped water supply, which has lasted over a week. The service interruptions have repeatedly been reported to the relevant utilities, but neither can provide an update as to when the issues will be fixed.

“We have had to bear significant costs associated with purchasing water for our tank because of these disruptions over the past week in order to keep our office open,” said Suzanne Stanley, JET CEO. “The impacts on productivity have been substantial, and as a result we have had to close our office early and send staff home on several occasions over the past few weeks.” JET reports that the connectivity issues have become worse within the last month. “JET is a small, charitable organization, and we cannot afford to bear these costs for much longer,” said Stanley.

JET advises members of the public, its members, partners and suppliers to stay tuned to our social media accounts - Facebook (facebook.com/jamentrust) and Twitter (@jamentrust) for updates on our opening hours, which we expect to vary on a regular basis until the water, phone and internet issues have been rectified.

JET is calling on the National Works Agency, and the other relevant Government of Jamaica agencies, contractors, and utilities to urgently address the issues being experienced by business and residents along the Constant Spring corridor, to return daily life to normal as soon as possible.
