The National Works Agency (NWA) has embarked on a new round of its multimillion-dollar Spray Patching programme in the Kingston Metropolitan region.

Manager of Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw says 22 roadways are to be patched.

Among them are Chisholm Avenue, Molynes Road, Hagley Park Road, Spanish Town Road, Michael Manley Boulevard, Lower Elleston Road, Windward Road and Mountain View Avenue.

Shaw says this programme complements a Hot Mix Patching project undertaken earlier this year along major corridors including Maxfield Avenue, Lyndhurst Road, Mandela Highway and Oxford Road.

He says the repairs are being undertaken by one of the Agency’s Force Account Teams and is expected to cost just over $5 million.

The Team is to undertake approximately 5,000 square metres of patching.

The work is expected to be completed in three weeks.

The NWA is advising motorists to obey posted warning signs and the instruction of flag persons while patching is in Progress.
