Some of the worst-affected sections of Waterloo Road, in St. Andrew are to be repaired over the weekend. Pothole patch and repair works will be carried out between the Hope Road and West Kings House Road intersections starting on Saturday morning (September 26) at 9 and all day on Sunday, September 27.

National Works Agency (NWA) Communications Manager, Stephen Shaw, explains that the activities will be confined to one driving lane at a time to mitigate the impact on the travelling public. Mr. Shaw however says that the works will result in delays and so is encouraging motorists to use alternative routes, where possible.

The activities are being carried out as part of the NWA’s Second Quarter Hot Mix Patching Programme for Kingston, St. Andrew, St. Catherine and St. Thomas valued at some 40 million dollars.

Motorists who are planning to use Waterloo Road at the weekend are being reminded to obey the instructions of flagpersons and posted warning signs during the period of works.
