Commuters utilising Constant Spring Road in St Andrew are being advised to add an extra 20 minutes of travel time to their schedules as the National Works Agency (NWA) has implemented a one-way system in the vicinity of the Grants Pen Road intersection.

The location was on Friday reduced to single-lane usage in order to facilitate construction work. The Grants Pen Ford was also closed.

Stephen Shaw, NWA communication and customer services manager, said the one-way system would be implemented during the morning and afternoon peak hours.

Between 6 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., the affected section of Constant Spring Road will facilitate traffic heading from the direction of Manor Park towards Dunrobin Avenue. The reverse will obtain between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Shaw said motorists heading in the direction of Manor Park during the morning peak hours should use Central Avenue and West Avenue, which lead back to Constant Spring Road. The reverse will obtain for those motorists wishing to head in the direction of Dunrobin Avenue during the afternoon peak hours.

He said the traffic changes are expected to be in place until Friday, when the first phase of the road works are expected to be complete.
