Commuters making the journey from Rio Claro to Mayaro have had to deal with traffic congestion in the Agostini area. But now MP for Mayaro/Rio Claro Rushton Paray says repair and rehabilitation work on the landslip there have begun.
This, he says, is expected to be completed within 90-120 days. Until then there will be single-lane traffic in the area.
Drivers are advised to use the Ecclesville alternative route, which is also in bad condition but is passable at present.
