Prime Minister Andrew Holness has promised that the government will repair the damage done by flood waters following the recent collapse of a retaining wall in Negril Westmoreland.
A section of the roadway gave way after heavy waves washed away the retaining wall in the West End.
This forced several business owners in the area to suspend operations.
The Prime Minister, in response, has pledged that his administration will be moving to quickly have the matter addressed, but he cautioned at the same time that, while this project is an emergency, it nevertheless "has to go through procurement process."
As a result, he conceded, those who use the road "will be inconvenienced for some time, but not a very long time."
