Work to improve the driving experience of persons in the parish of St. Elizabeth is now underway. The National Works Agency (NWA) is now targeting some 27 corridors under a multi-million dollar patching programme.
Manager, Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw says that under the programme, a number of main and parochial roads will be targeted. The 12,000 square meter programme commenced last week and is expected to be completed by the end of February.
Corridors that will be benefitting under this programme, valued at 40 million dollars, include that from Pedro Cross to Lititz, Lititz to Brinkley, Breas River to Newton, Black River to Luana to Scotts Cove, Mountainside to Malvern and Redgate to Elderslie.
Mr Shaw says that the roads from New Holland to Redgate, Luana to Tombstone, White Hall to Bethsalem, Lacovia to Vauxhall, Brompton to Cotterwood, Red Dirt to Round Hill, Vauxhall to Union, Vauxhall to Arcadia and the Santa Cruz Bypass will also be improved.
Road users are therefore being advised to obey posted warning signs and the instructions of flag persons while the works are in progress.
