Minister of Transport and Works Michael Lashley said other private companies – Rayside Construction ands Brathwaite’s Construction – were expected to come on board within the next two weeks.

He told the media while at Goodland that the pothole patching project would be complemented with a $4 million mill and pave programme. (LK)
