KINGSTON, Jamaica — The National Works Agency (NWA) says sixteen roadways in St Ann are being patched while critical drains in Ocho Rios and Endeavour are being cleaned.

NWA says the project, valued at $48.2 million, forms part of its island wide routine maintenance efforts that was rolled out in mid–March and is scheduled to be completed in May.

Roadways that have already benefitted under the programme include Alexandria to Grenock Bridge, Moneague through Walkerswood to Swansea, Harmony Vale to Pedro, Runaway Bay to Browns Town and roadways within the townships of Ocho Rios and St Ann's Bay.

The NWA said it also targeted critical drains as part of the programme especially in light of the impending rainy season.

Drains that were cleaned include a box culvert and earth drain in Ocho Rios and side drains, earth drains and outlets along the Caledonia to Stewart Town corridor.
