The Jamaica Public Service Company,(JPS), is reporting that 98% of streetlights have been repaired and are fully functional.
The power company has been working closely with the municipality councils and has also utilised reports from the public. To date, the JPS has repaired 9,585 streetlights, exceeding its target for October. This number also includes streetlights managed by the National Works Agency (NWA) those on lower Mandela Highway to the Portmore intersection, and the boulevard stretch of Cooreville Gardens/Duhaney Park intersection to Dunrobin and Papine to Liguanea.
JPS says it assisted the agency (NWA) in expediting the process by undertaking the repairs in these areas. The other 2% that is yet to be repaired includes a few areas in Kingston and St. James. These repairs are expected to be completed soon. The power company reminds the public to refrain from tampering with streetlights.
