Marcus Garvey Drive to get more changes

More changes are coming to Marcus Garvey Drive which is currently being reconstructed. These will include an extension of the work zone and drainage improvements.   
  
Stephen Shaw, Communication Manager at National Works Agency (NWA), says among the changes that will be seen, starting this weekend, is the temporary removal of a section of the concrete median, between East Avenue and Fourth Avenue. This will facilitate the removal of the old asphalt.
  
The focus over the next week will be on the west-bound carriage way towards Three Miles, which will also be lifted and the cement base laid.
  
Traffic will then be diverted onto the newly laid base up to the Tivoli Gully.   
  
While the project is slated to be completed in March next year, the NWA is working to have the concrete base completed by Christmas.
  
This will reduce the delays being experienced along Marcus Garvey Drive especially during peak periods.

Road patching

In the meantime, the NWA is to patch several roads in Kingston and St. Catherine over the next four weeks.
  
They include East Avenue, West Avenue, Sutton Street, Grants Pen Road, Gibson Drive, University Road, Glendon Circle, Ripon Road, Beechwood Avenue and Rousseau Road.
  
The main roads from Cooperage to Mahogany Vale; Stony Hill to Parks road; Rock Hall to Parks road; and Nolan Hill to Border will also be patched. 
  
In St. Catherine, the Spanish Town to Port Henderson road as well as the roads from Spanish Town to Naggo Head; Naggo Head to Dawkins Pen; Bog Walk to Fletcher Street as well as Vanity Fair to Bermady will be patched.
