KINGSTON, Jamaica — The National Works Agency says that over the next two days motorists may experience delays when travelling along the Sawyers main road in South Trelawny.

This is as the Agency completes much-needed resurfacing works along the heavily used corridor.

The Sawyers main road is located along the Jackson Town to Ulster Spring corridor and is being repaired to improve the ease and safety with which commuters traverse the roadway.

According to Community Relations Officer for the NWA’s Western Region, Janel Ricketts, the roadway is currently being repaired under a $5 million contract, and work is expected to be completed by Saturday morning, weather permitting.

Motorists are being advised to obey the posted warning signs and instructions of flag people.

Meanwhile, motorists are being advised to exercise extreme caution when travelling along a section of the Stettin main road in Trelawny in the vicinity of the Stettin Health Centre.

This follows heavy rainfall over the last 48 hours in the area which caused a section of the embankment to collapse, resulting in the roadway being undermined.

This section of the roadway is now reduced to single-lane traffic.
