The duration of the programme is three (3) weeks, however phase one of this two phase programme will begin today and end on Friday, December 19, 2014. This is being done to facilitate the increased number of vehicles on the roadways during the holiday period.

Approximately 3,500 square metres of Hot Mix patching will be carried out along twenty-three (23) corridors. Twelve corridors will be addressed during phase one. They are Constant Spring Road, Molynes Road, Eastwood Park Road, Red Hills Road, Hagley Park Road, Maxfield Avenue, Mona Road and Hermitage Road.
