The National Works Agency (NWA) says it's undertaking a $7.7 million hot-mix patching exercise along several roadways in St Elizabeth.

Community Relations Officer for the NWA’s Southern Region, Howard Hendriks, says the patching exercise will be carried out along eight roads across the parish.

Hendriks says emphasis is being placed on the worst affected sections of the targeted roadways.

The targeted roadways include: the Park to Mountainside corridor; the Aberdeen to Quickstep roadway; the stretch from Luana to Sandy Ground and the Southfield to Portsea main road.

Hendriks says work will continue on the Redgate to Washfoot Gully and Pizgah to Ginger Hill roadways.

The works, which started on July 27, are expected to be completed before the end of this month.

The road patching exercise is being funded by the Road Maintenance Fund.

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