The National Works Agency (NWA) is to embark on a $583-million road rehabilitative effort along three critical roadways in Hanover.

Community Relations Officer for the NWA's Western Region says this latest effort by the NWA, to repair roadways in the parish, targets approximately 26 kilometres of roadway.

The projects are being undertaken through the Government of Jamaica's US$82.9 million Major Infrastructure Development Programme.

Ricketts says the projects involve significant drainage improvement, the construction of retaining walls, as well as the reshaping and resurfacing of the roadways using Asphaltic Concrete.

Among the roadways to receive attention are the stretch of roadway between Riley and Glasgow, the Green Island to Silver Spring corridor and the Santoy to Orange Bay roadway.
