Mike Henry, Transport Minister, has expressed concern about the calculations that were done to arrive at the toll rates being proposed for the Caymanas to Ocho Rios leg of the North South Highway.
He is of the view that the rates may hinder economic development. Since the publication of the proposed toll rates, there have been negative responses from members of the public as well as the private sector. Mr Henry stated that his Ministry, up to Thursday, had received 95 responses. He said the rates have given him concern because he is not certain there is enough economic activity around the toll roads to support their existence.
