The National Works Agency (NWA) in collaboration with the Tourism Product Development Company and the Tourism Enhancement Fund are embarking on a $6-million road rehabilitation programme along the Elegant Corridor in St James.

The NWA says this effort forms part of a targeted approach to repair access roads along the Corridor.

Community Relations Officer for the NWA’s Western Region, Janel Ricketts, says this phase of the project will see the asphalting of six entrances.

These include Barrette Hall, Long Bay, Suga Pepper and the Refuge Temple roadways.

Ricketts says the project will target small sections of these roadways, averaging between 30 and 80 metres in length.

The project, which is scheduled to get underway within another week, is expected to be completed before the end of July.

Motorists are being advised to obey the posted warning signs and the instructions of flag persons.
