Residents in Hanover are to benefit from two multimillion-dollar road rehabilitation programmes.



The projects are being undertaken by the National Works Agency (NWA), and are expected to cost just under $16 million.



Community Relations Officer for the NWA’s Western Region, Janel Ricketts, says work has already began on sections of the Shettlewood to Chester Castle corridor in Eastern Hanover.



Ricketts says this will involve the bushing of verges, drain cleaning and the patching and rehabilitation of approximately 2,000 square meters of roadway at a cost of $7.4 million.



She says the other project will focus on sections of the Chelsea Bridge to Cacoon roadway, in Western Hanover.



Ricketts says this project is valued at approximately $8.5 million and involves the bushing of embankments, cleaning of drains and the rehabilitation of 10,000 square metres of roadway.



The projects are expected to be completed by the end of this month.
