The supply of asphalt is expected to be normalised by the end of this week following the completion of maintenance work at Petrojam today.
The plant where asphalt is produced has been out of operation for maintenance work resulting in a shortage.
This has led to a delay in the reinstatement of road surfaces by the National Water Commission, after installing pipe facilities.
General Manager at Petrojam, Winston Watson says the market should be normalised by Friday.
Mr. Watson says while the asphalt refinery has been out of operation, Petrojam’s supply had been depleted causing the shortage.
He says the plant is normally out of operation for maintenance once annually.
The asphalt refinery has been out of operation since mid-May.
