The Paisley Main Road in Clarendon has been closed to vehicular traffic for eight weeks by the National Works Agency (NWA)  to undertake critical repairs. 

The NWA says the closure is in the vicinity of Junno Gully.

NWA Communication Manager, Stephen Shaw, says that the road, which had been reduced to single lane traffic following a recent flood, has deteriorated further and now pose a threat to motorists.

Shaw says the project, which is being undertaken at a cost of just under $20 million, will see the construction of four retaining walls, the improvement of the drainage features and the rehabilitation of an affected section of road.

He says traffic will be diverted during the period of the closure.

Shaw says motorists wishing to travel from May Pen towards Palmers Cross may travel along Junno Crescent and through Junno Community.

He says motorists may also use Hazard Drive and Trenton Road or the Bustmante Highway.

Shaw says the reverse will obtain for persons travelling from the direction of Palmers Cross towards the township of May Pen.

Motorists are being advised to obey the posted warning signs and instructions of the flag-persons during the period of closure.
