Road projects are at various stages of completion - NWA
Work is progressing on the multibillion-dollar infrastructure improvement projects on Constant Spring Road and Hagley Park Road in St Andrew, according to National Works Agency (NWA) Senior Communications and Customer Services Officer, Ramona Lawson.
She said that the 18-month projects are at various stages of completion, with Constant Spring Road about 25 per cent complete, while 35 per cent of the Hagley Park Road development has already been done.
Lawson said that work now being carried out on Constant Spring Road is mainly concentrated on the eastern side of the project area, and will soon be shifted to the western side.
"For sewer works, we are about 80 per cent complete for one of the larger sewer lines, and for the smaller sewer line, we are about 60 per cent complete, [while] for the water line, we are 60 per cent complete. So, now we are moving over to the western side to put in the main water lines there. For storm-water drainage, however, overall on the project, we are about 90 per cent complete," she said.
Lawson also noted that paving works have been done on about a one-kilometre stretch on the eastern side of the project, between Olivier Road and Hillman Road.
"We have done base works, and that is the filling in with material to prepare for paving about 250 metres in the vicinity of Oakland as well. The plan on the Constant Spring project is to continue with the base and pavement works in areas as soon as the pipe-laying works have been completed," she said.
A total of US$19 million is being spent on the Constant Spring Road Improvement project.
