At first, there was no clarity about the time frame of the work on the road, but JRA’s spokesperson, Bertha Peters-Scheepers, indicated in a statement that the plan was to have it completed by next Monday, 16 July, in time for the re-opening of schools.

Peter Road towards Walnut Road remains barricaded and motorists are still advised to use the detours. With regard to the dust problem created by vehicles using the dirt-road detours (Walnut and Cypress Roads), Bertha said a water tanker will be used to spray water on the roads today, Thursday, 12 July.
