Corporation">Jamaica Railway Corporation Introduction The Corporation">Jamaica Railway Corporation (JRC) is a statutory body formed under the Corporation">Jamaica Railway Corporation Act of 1960. Since December 1990 the Corporation granted user rights over a section of its tracks to West Indies Alumina Company (WINDALCo) to operate a freight service. The Corporation’s train service was suspended in October 1992, but resumed in 2011 with a limited passenger service covering Spanish Town, Bog Walk and Linstead in St. Catherine. The resumption of limited passenger service was discontinued on August 12, 2012. Operational and Financial Overview To maximize the economic use of the rail, efforts will continue towards facilitating the rehabilitation of a viable rail network from Kingston to Montego Bay for passenger, freight, as well as heritage tourism. The JRC will also pursue initiatives to improve the management of its extensive real estate portfolio with a view to increasing the overall return on assets. The establishment of an Enterprise Team to guide the privatisation of the rail network was approved in 2019/20. Accordingly, it is anticipated that the process to facilitate increased private participation in the restoration of rail services across the network will continue during the budget year. The JRC will continue to fulfil its existing contractual responsibilities under the Track User Agreement with UC Rusal Jamaica Limited. The JRC projects a net profit of $61.87 million (2019/20 estimate: $20.27 million).
JRC plans to maintain its existing staff complement of Fifty One (51).
