The National Works Agency (NWA) says it is currently undertaking a road marking programme along several corridors across the island.

The programme which is valued at over $35 million targets 21 roadways in the Kingston Metropolitan Region, St Catherine, St Ann and Manchester.

Manager of Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw, says the effort is part of the NWA’s thrust to improve safety and efficiency along the main roads.

He says the programme started in late September and will see approximately 105 kilometres of line marking.

This is to be followed by the installation of approximately 13,213 Raised Pavement Markers or Cats Eyes along the road sections.

Motorists are being advised to exercise caution in the work zones and to heed posted warning signs.
