With recent severe weather events impacting the nation’s roads, the Government has been assessing the damage with a view to allocating funds for the necessary repairs. Prime Minister Andrew Holness says island-wide damage from flood events so far this fiscal year has resulted in a 640.3 billion dollar bill. He notes that only 54.8 million dollars was allocated for emergency road repairs in the 2019/2020 budget. Following recent heavy rains, some 215 roads were reported blocked, some completely impassable, while others were badly damaged.
