NWA commences repairs in Bog Walk GorgeMonday, June 14, 2021
ST CATHERINE, Jamaica — The National Works Agency (NWA) says sections of the Bog Walk Gorge in St Catherine will be reduced to single lane traffic as the agency begins repair works.
According to the NWA the works, which began over the weekend, are scheduled to last for six weeks.
The NWA said that the stretch, which forms part of one of the main corridors linking the northern and southern coasts, was damaged last November, when the island experienced weeks of heavy showers.
Manager of communication and customer services at NWA, Stephen Shaw said that the works will be concentrated on the area between Dam Head and the Bog Walk round-a-bout.
Shaw said that the work is being done at a cost of $18 million and will include the removal of old rutted surfaces, through a process called milling, filling of potholes and paving with asphaltic concrete.
Motorists are therefore being advised to exercise caution and obey the instructions of flag persons and posted signs.
