The National Works Agency (NWA) says it will take at least another two weeks before the stolen sign for the P.J. Patterson Highway is replaced.

The sign was stolen on April 22, just five days after it was unveiled.

The NWA had said it had hoped to replace the sign within a week after the discovery.

However, senior communications officer at the NWA, Colin Morrison, told our news centre today that it will take longer.

He says the officer in charge of the process is on leave.

He adds that the procurement process will take some time.

The first sign was originally bought for $120,000.
