Rinker Jamaica Limited, the local subsidiary of Cemex, plans to invest US$300m to build a limestone quarry and port in Clarendon parish’s Rocky Point, on the island’s southern coast, the National Planning and Environment Agency (NEPA) reported on its website.
The project includes the processing, transport and export of the limestone.
Rinker Jamaica already has conducted an EIA covering the development of the port and the associated transportation mechanism (conveyor belt) from the processing plant.
Construction of both the quarry and port is expected to take 18-24 months, the report said.
