Upgraded Road Access To Bath Fountain Set To Increase Visitor Traffic

Rehabilitated road work will now allow easier access by visitors to the idyllic Bath Fountain in St. Thomas.

This comes on the back of the completion of phase one of a $45.5-million Bath access road rehabilitation project.

Tourism Minister Edmond Bartlett noted that the project “is so essential to provide access to this great facility called Bath Fountain.

Moreover, he noted that the Bath Fountain “is a signature attraction for the parish.”

He posited that rehabilitation of the access road is expected to increase visitor traffic to Bath Fountain.

“Visitors will be exposed to a broader range of community tourism experiences focused on cultural and heritage assets, enhancing Jamaica’s quest to promote the island as a multifaceted destination,” he noted.

Meanwhile, Member of Parliament for St. Thomas Eastern, Dr. Michelle Charles, said that the mineral spa, with its natural healing properties and serene surroundings, has the potential to become a gem in the local tourism industry.

“By improving the infrastructure that leads to this attraction, we are sending a message to the world that we are ready to welcome tourists and provide them with an unforgettable experience,” Dr. Charles said.

She noted that the renovated roadway will open new opportunities for economic growth, job creation, and sustainable development, by enhancing connectivity, reducing travel time, improving access to essential services, and opening avenues for commerce and trade.
