Repairs amounting to over $630 million will be spent on roads in several parishes by the The National Works Agency. The parishes include St. Ann, St. Thomas, St. Mary as well as Kingston and St. Andrew. This forms part of the road component of the Housing, Opportunity, Prosperity and Employment (HOPE) Programme. The programme includes pot-hole patching, drainage improvement works and construction of retaining walls. The program is expected to be completed by December.
