The National Works Agency (NWA) is reporting that the expansion of Marcus Garvey Drive in St Andrew is on schedule for completion by April 2017.

The project, being carried out under the Major Infrastructure Development Programme, involves the expansion of a section of the roadway from four lanes to six and the installation of sidewalks.

The drainage infrastructure and lighting are also being upgraded.

Communication manager at the NWA Stephen Shaw, says so far, the southern side has been completed.

He says the contractor has now started to lay the asphaltic concrete surface, and the median barriers are being installed.

The project began in March.
