Plans to revive railway passenger service advanced
KINGSTON, Jamaica Plans by the Jamaica Railway Corporation (JRC) to revive the railway passenger service are advanced.
We are in the last phase of completing an arrangement with a private consortium, which will take over 34 kilometres of our right of way and rails, improve and relay the tracks, buy their own engine and coaches, and maintain the equipment and tracks, Transport and Mining Minister Robert Montague announced in his contribution in the 2019/20 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on Tuesday, June 4.
He noted that the service is expected to commence on the Montpelier to Catadupa leg in St James as a tourist attraction, and eventually extended to Appleton in St Elizabeth.
