Dump to Moravia roadway in Manchester reopens to single lane traffic

The National Works Agency (NWA) says the Dump to Moravia roadway, in the vicinity of Silent Hill, in Manchester has been reopened to vehicular traffic. 

Community Relations Officer of the NWA, Howard Hendricks, says it will, however, accommodate single lane traffic as the rehabilitative works now at 70 per cent, are ongoing. 

The corridor was closed last year because of a breakaway.

The repair project, which began in March, includes the construction of drains, installation of culverts and the erection of a retaining wall.

The $12 million project is expected to be completed by the end of next month and will result in a safer corridor for residents of Moravia, Silent Hill Dump, Christiana and Alston.

Motorists and pedestrians are advised to continue to obey the instructions of flag persons and posted traffic signs.
