The National Works Agency (NWA) is embarking on an $88 million road rehabilitation project along the Essex Hall to Burnt Shop roadway in St Andrew.

Acting NWA Communications Manager, Janel Ricketts, says the project involves the rehabilitation of 3.6 kilometres of roadway.

The works to be undertaken include drain improvement; repairs to breakaways; the construction of gabion retaining walls and other retaining structures; and the reshaping and resurfacing of the roadway using asphaltic concrete.

Ricketts says the project is now in an advanced stage as the preparatory works have been completed and the emphasis is now on asphalting the road.

The project, which got underway in April, is expected to be completed by October.

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

This project is being executed through the Government’s Major Infrastructure Development Programme.
