FLOW Accuses NWA of Breach of Roadworks Agreement

Telecommunications giant, Flow, is accusing the National Works Agency, NWA, of breaching the terms of their agreement.

According to Flow, the NWA is conducting road works in areas where the telecoms firm has its cables underground without advising them of the extent of those works.

Yesterday, Flow said it had sustained more than $81-million worth of damage to its infrastructure due to ongoing roadworks in sections of the Corporate Area.

Director of Corporate Communications at Flow, Kayan Mitchell, was speaking last evening on Nationwide @ 5.

Ms Mitchell says on the weekend, Flow conducted extensive restoration activities for several of its customers in the Corporate area.

She says the service to those customers was to be restored by last night.

In the meantime, Mrs. Mitchell dismissed claims that Flow is partly to be blamed for the destruction of their infrastructure by road work contractors.
