KINGSTON, Jamaica:

The National Works Agency (NWA) has started Phase III of its islandwide Spray Patching programme.

This phase will see repairs to 33 major corridors in the Metropolitan Region of Kingston, St Andrew and St Catherine.

Among the roadways to be patched in Kingston are August Town Road, East Avenue, Carter Avenue, Weymouth Drive, Clifton Boulevard, White Hall Avenue, Manning’s Hill Road, Arnold Road, Pembroke Hall Drive and Westlake Avenue.

In St Andrew three corridors are slated for patching.

These are Cooperage to Guava Ridge, Stony Hill to Parks Road, and Old Stony Hill Road/Constant Spring Road to Stony Hill.

The six corridors in St. Catherine along which Spray Patching will be carried out are Spanish Town to Port Henderson Road, Spanish Town to Naggo Head, Naggo Head to Dawkin’s Pen, Spanish Town to Sligoville, Ewarton to Mount Diablo and Spanish Town to Bamboo.

The NWA says the projects are being undertaken by the National Works Agency’s Force Account Teams and are expected to cost 20.9-6 million dollars.

The NWA is asking motorists who travel along these corridors to obey posted warning signs and the instruction of flag persons while patching is in progress.
