Located along Slipe Road near the intersection of Old Hope Road and Half Way Tree Rd; the Cross Roads Clock Tower was constructed by the then Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation during 1955 in memorial for those who gave their lives in WWII between 1939 and 1945. The Clock over time has fallen into disrepair and its Tower needs a renovation which will uplift the structure and allow for the attraction of tourists and locals. There are ten (10) brass name plates on a plaque which is on the tower, some of which have fallen off.
The Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC) has embarked on a project to renovate the tower and restore the Cross Roads Clock. Upon completion of the renovation there will be a ceremony to be held on Thursday,February 28, 2019. The ceremony will reveal the newly renovated style of the clock tower and the ceremony will consist of drills performed by the JCF, inspection of the guards, uniformed groups march past, flag raising and performances by dance groups. There will be the laying of a wreath in memoir of persons who lost their lives in WWII by Mayor Kaiane Lopez from Gibraltar and possibly the Ministry of Culture Gender Entertainment and Sport.
The renovation of the Cross Roads Clock tower will not just be for the event but it must be highlighted that it would be an attraction for local and international tourists with its unique architectural features and its focus as a WWII memorial and not to mention having the return of a working clock with a bell that tolls in the city.
