NWA undertaking $100m road work in several parishes

Several roads in Kingston, St. Andrew, St. Catherine as well as St. Thomas are to be patched under a $100 million programme being carried out by the National Works Agency (NWA).
 
The programme started last week.
  
In rural St. Andrew, the roads from Stony Hill to Parks Road, Nolan Hill to Border, Guava Ridge to Mahagony Vale as well as Woodford to Norbrook are among those that will be patched.
  
Elsewhere in Kingston and St. Andrew, the NWA will undertake work on Arnold Road, Constant Spring Road, Conway Drive, Patrick Drive, Windward Road, Papine Square, Langston Road as well as Gordon Town Road.
  
NWA Communication Manager Stephen Shaw says 16 roads in St. Catherine will be patched. They include Spanish Town to Bamboo, Church Road to Knollis, Bamboo to Worthy Park as well as Vanity Fair to Bermady.

St. Thomas

In the meantime, just less than $14 million is being spent to improve seven major roads in St. Thomas.
 
The roads are Morant Bay to Port Morant, Port Morant to Pleasant Hill, Pleasant Hill to Hectors River, Church Corner to Morant River Bridge, Bull Bay to Grants Pen, Grants Pen to Pamphret, Pamphret to Morant Bay and Morant River Bridge to Trinityville.
 
The NWA is planning to complete the programme in three weeks if there are favourable weather conditions.
 
Patching activities are usually suspended where there is heavy rain.
