Funds set aside to address flooding of the Tinson Pen Aerodrome


The Airports Authority of Jamaica (AAJ) has set aside funds to end the continuous flooding of the Tinson Pen Aerodrome, and a section of the Marcus Garvey Drive, in St. Andrew.

According to Minister of Transport and Mining,  Robert Montague, the AAJ’s engineering department did a study on the area and discovered that a major drain is blocked.

He said whenever flooding occurs in the area, all tenants at the Tinson Pen facility are affected, and a budget is in place for the project.
