NWA moves to make roads safer for motorists and pedestrians

The National Work’s Agency (NWA) has embarked on an island-wide drive to improve the safety of motorists and pedestrians across the country.

Under this latest effort, the Agency is installing and replacing Raised Pavement Markers, also called ‘Cat Eyes’; as well as traffic delineators or ‘candle sticks’; and Rumble Strips, which are used to raise the awareness of motorist in sensitive areas.

Work on several thoroughfares has already been completed.

The NWA intends to complete this phase of works by the end of March, when it is expected that Old Hope Road, between Cross Roads and Matilda’s Corner and the main road from Spalding to Cave Valley in St Ann will both benefit from improved markings and the replacing of Raised Pavement Markers.

The Road Maintenance Fund (RMF) has provided financial support to undertake these works and the partnership will continue into the new financial year to undertake works along other corridors.
