Work advance on $15m Martha Brae to Holland road repair project
TRELAWNY, Jamaica -The National Works Agency (NWA) says over 40 per cent of the rehabilitation works planned for the Martha Brae to Holland section of the 16- mile Falmouth to Springvale corridor, has been completed.
The project, valued at approximately $15 million, represents the second phase of a targeted approach to rehabilitating the stretch of roadway between Falmouth and Springvale.
“We’re approximately 40 per cent complete. It’s an eight-week contract and has just a little over four weeks remaining in the contract,” Community Relations Officer at the NWA’s Western Region, Janel Ricketts told OBSERVER ONLINE.
“We have completed all the base work on the targeted area and the curve and channel is 75 per cent complete. We are focusing now on completing the curve and channel and priming, then move on to asphalting.”
The project targets approximately 500 metres of roadway and involves drainage improvement works and the reshaping and asphalting of the targeted section of the roadway using Asphaltic Concrete.
