The City of Kingston, particularly the downtown area, is gradually coming alive again as various infrastructural developments continue to unfold.
One of the latest fixtures to be unveiled is the new aesthetically appealing boardwalk, which now greets visitors to Port Royal Street along the segment spanning the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade building to the Rae Town fishing beach.
The 4.7-metre-wide boardwalk where persons can comfortably engage in commercial and recreational activities, was created under the just completed $1.3-billion Port Royal Street Coastal Revetment Project, implemented by the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF) to safeguard the corridor from continued erosion and the effects of storm surges.

The one-kilometre project was implemented by the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF) and funded by the World Bank to the tune of $1.3 billion.
