Published:Saturday | September 17, 2016 | 9:14 AM

Several traffic changes have been implemented in the vicinity of the National Arena to facilitate the People’s Nationals Party (PNP's) Annual Conference today.

The police say Arthur Wint Drive will be operated as a one-way, beginning at North Avenue to Roosevelt Avenue and that the section of road between the Bob Marley statue and the main entrance to the National Arena will be converted to a pedestrian-only zone.

Motorists travelling to the National Arena from Tom Redcam Avenue who wish to access the parking area at the top of Arthur Wint Drive must turn left onto Roosevelt Avenue, then right onto Stanton Terrace, then right onto Mountain View Avenue then make their way down Arthur Wint Drive.

The police say only vehicles conveying patrons will be allowed to turn from Mountain View Avenue onto Arthur Wint Drive. 

However, these vehicles will not be allowed to continue down Arthur Wint Drive, and must either park, or make their way back onto Mountain View Avenue and out of the area.

Members of the general public, including Jamaica Urban Transit Company buses, will continue straight along Mountain View Avenue and will not be allowed to turn onto Arthur Wint Drive.

The police say no parking will be allowed on Arthur Wint Drive, Roosevelt Avenue, Stanton Terrace, Mountain View Avenue between Nannyville and Old Hope Road, Latham Avenue and North Avenue.

Traffic changes took effect at 7 o’clock this morning and will last until 6 o'clock this evening.
