Work is far advanced to complete rehabilitation of the Lethe roadway in Eastern Hanover, at a cost of $9 million.

The project, which is scheduled for completion by the end of November, entails the patching and rehabilitation of sections of the one kilometre roadway and significant drainage improvement.

The project is being funded by the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) and undertaken by the National Works Agency (NWA).

Community Relations Officer for the NWA’s Western Region, Janel Ricketts, told JIS News that the rehabilitation work is necessary, particularly as it serves the tourism sector.

“The Lethe corridor is an important roadway, which is used to access several tourist attractions and activities located in the Lethe community. These include zip-lining and river rafting,” Ms. Ricketts informed.

She said that on completion, visitors and tour operators as well as the general commuters will experience greater ease and comfort in using the corridor.

In the meantime, the NWA recently completed patching of approximately 4,000 square metres of roadway across five road sections in Hanover, including the Riley to Bushmouth main road, a stretch of roadway between Salt Spring and Moreland, and the Flint River to Cascade corridor.
