Motorists traversing the section of the corridor between Jackson Town and Blagrove Drive should experience some delays as the National Works Agency (NWA) ramps up activities for the J$166 million rehabilitation of the main road from Jackson Town to Ulster Spring in Southern Trelawny.
These delays may be experienced between the hours of 8am and 6pm daily, when sections of the corridor will be reduced to single-lane traffic. The single-lane usage is to facilitate the installation of stormwater culverts.
According to Community Relations Officer at the NWA Janel Ricketts, the rehabilitation works started on Sunday (May 28) and traffic delays are expected to last for two weeks.
Ricketts says that under the project, the main works will primarily be concentrated between the Jackson Town and Sawyers communities. The activities will focus on drainage improvement, the construction of parapet walls, and the reshaping and asphalting of the worst affected sections of the roadway.
Additionally, the project will see the construction of a retaining wall, in the vicinity of the Ulster Spring Primary School, where a section of the roadway has been undermined.
The project, which commenced in mid-May 2023, is expected to be completed within seven months.
