NWA to patch western parish roads
The National Works Agency (NWA) has commenced a $184 million patching programme across St James, Trelawny, Westmoreland, and Hanover.
The programme forms part of efforts to improve the road network across the western region.
Community Relations Officer for the NWA's Western Region, Janel Ricketts, says that the project targets several roadways, including the Adelphi to Kent corridor in St James; the Wakefield to Friendship main road in Trelawny; the Withorn to Darliston roadway in Westmoreland and the stretch of roadway from Askenish to Kew Bridge in Hanover.
This latest effort by the NWA forms part of a $1 billion islandwide hot mix patching programme. The programme will augment earlier efforts to patch roadways across the region under an islandwide local rehabilitation and drainage improvement programme, valued at approximately $1.35 billion.
This programme targeted roadways which were ravaged by flood rains.
