Steer Town, Chalky Hill residents blast China Harbour, NROCC for severe damage to their communities.

BEYOND the splendour of the North-South link of Highway 2000 anger boils in at least two communities in St Ann where residents feel shafted by the builders of the 66-kilometre toll road and the State entity that had responsibility for the implementation of the US$730-million project.

Potholed roads, dust tracks, cracked houses, and unfinished drains which lead rain water into small pools that can serve as breeding grounds for mosquitoes are among the problems pointed out to the Jamaica Observer during a tour of Steer Town and Chalky Hill on Monday this week.
