USERS OF the Chalky Hill roadway in St Ann, the main thoroughfare truckers use to avoid the Fern Gully, are to endure the poor road conditions for a long time as the National Works Agency (NWA) is yet to identify funds to fix the road.

"We are aware of the situation and we are trying to source the requisite funds to do some work," said Stephen Shaw, NWA manager, communications and customer service.

Shaw said the funds have not yet been identified, but when this is done, the NWA would be in a position to say when work would begin.

He said a programme is being formulated to address the problems of potholes islandwide and this would include the Chalky Hill corridor.

This consists of the roadway stretching from Steer Town up to Golden Grove and includes areas such as Steerfield, Ewart Town, Davis Town and other communities.
