Mr. Shaw was speaking this morning on OPM Live on Cliff Hughes Online.

He says the NWA is also aware of the protest on the Johns Hall main road in St James.

Over the last three weeks residents have been blocking several thoroughfares in the southern section of the parish including Tucker, Johns Hall, Spring Mount, Kensington and Springfield over the bad state of the roads.

The roads are yet to be cleared.

Mr. Shaw says the NWA needs additional funding to address the state of the main road network across the island.
