NWA undertakes $10 million Hot Mix patching programme
The National Works Agency (NWA) says it is spending $10 million on a Hot Mix patching programme along 26 corridors in Kingston, St Andrew, St Catherine and St Thomas.
The patching began last Wednesday and is expected to be completed within six weeks.
The roads being addressed in Kingston and St Andrew include West Kings House Road, Ruthven Road, Roseberry Drive, Mona Road, Hermitage Road, Holborn Road, Grove Road, Duhaney Drive and Central Road.
Patching will also be carried out along the Harbour View to Bull Bay main road in St Andrew.
In St Catherine, the Mandela Highway from Twickenham Park to Ferry and Bog Walk to Fletchers Avenue, Ewarton are being patched.
In St Thomas patching will be carried out along the Bull Bay to Grants Pen and Port Morant to Pleasant Hill corridors.
Manager of Communication and Customer Services at the National Works Agency, Stephen Shaw says, the selected corridors are usually busy and motorists who use these roadways should expect minor delays.
Shaw is advising motorists to use alternative routes where possible.
