A new highway has been constructed on the Caribbean island of Jamaica that will make a dramatic improvement in travel times and road safety for the country.
The new US$700 million North-South link of Highway 2000 has been constructed in a bid to reduce travel times between Jamaica’s north and south coasts. Travel time from Kingston to the north coast town of Ocho Rios, which is very popular with tourists, will be approximately 30 minutes shorter.
The new highway should also help to reduce the number of crashes as it is built to modern standards and is safer than the existing route, with higher levels of protection for road users. In addition, the new highway means that visitors to Jamaica have more options in terms of which airport they use.
This is expected to further drive the tourist industry and help boost Jamaica’s economy. The new North-South link of Highway 2000 is also expected to drive additional tourism developments.
Hollow anchor bolt has been largely used as an economical and efficient method for slope stabilization in highway projects. With novel structure, advanced technology, reliable quality, strong adaptability and good durability, hollow anchor bolt will have vast potential for future development. And it will become a mark for the progress of geotechnical technology in the world.
