Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, says the government is pursuing a multi-dimensional strategy to reduce the impact of traffic congestion in commercial areas on productivity and development.

Mr. Holness was addressing a stakeholder meeting in Barbican, St. Andrew last night.

The meeting was held ahead of the execution of a multi-million dollar Barbican road expansion project.

During the meeting, Mr. Holness directed Chairman of the National Housing Trust, Nigel Clarke, to also explore options to regularize some homeowners in Barbican.
