The annual summer road cleaning programme is scheduled to begin today, Thursday August 6, 2020.
The initiative spearheaded by the Roads, Buildings & General Services Authority (BRAGSA), will see the employment of over five thousand persons island-wide.
This will include 395 gangs and 892 jobbers, who will be responsible for the cutting of trees, and cleaning of roads in all 15 constituencies over the next two weeks.
Contracts will also be given to over 150 truckers and conductors.
The programme is being done at an estimated cost of 2.5 million EC dollars.
BRAGSA is therefore appealing to motorists and pedestrian to take the necessary precautions during this period.
