Plans underway to improve Westmoreland roadway

The National Works Agency (NWA) says plans are being developed for rehabilitation of the main road from Gooden’s River to Glasgow in Westmoreland.

The NWA’s announcement is in response to Monday’s protest over the poor state of the roadway.

The Gooden’s River to Glasgow links the town of Savanna-la-Mar to the neighbouring communities of Frome, Town Head, and Grange Hill as well as Hanover.

Community Relations Officer for the NWA’s Western Region, Janel Ricketts, says that the Agency is aware of the state of the roadway and is currently revising an earlier estimate which was made as part of plans to have the corridor rehabilitated.

Ricketts says the revision of the estimate, for the works to be undertaken along the corridor, became necessary as recent rains have caused further damage to the roadway.

She explains that the completion of the estimate to carry-out works on the roadway is an important precursor to the government sourcing funds to execute the rehabilitative works along the corridor.
