A release from BRAGSA said the focus of the exercise would be on the clearing of drains and road verges.

“The authority is also continuing with its 2015 Road Repair Programme and all attempts are being made to schedule and implement these repair works to accommodate motorists and road users. The patching units are also out doing patching in various communities throughout mainland St Vincent and some parts of Kingstown.

“BRAGSA looks forward to the co-operation of the public with a view that works will be completed on schedule and with minimal disruption,” the release said.
