Three-month road closure planned for Nolan Hill to Border main road in St Andrew

The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising that a section of the Nolan Hill to Border main road, in St Andrew, will be closed to vehicular traffic for three months starting on Monday.

The NWA says the closure is to facilitate repairs to a breakaway in Mount Ogle District. 

The agency’s Communication Manager, Stephen Shaw, says several months ago the roadway was reduced to single lane traffic and subsequently became impassable to large vehicles following heavy rains in April and May this year.

Shaw says the rehabilitative works will include the construction of a retaining wall, drainage construction and the reinstatement of the roadway.

During the closure, motorists travelling from Stony Hill to Mount Ogle will turn left at Stony Hill Square onto the Stony Hill to Parks Road main road, continue to the Cavaliers District, then onto the St Christopher to Glengoffe road, also known as Burn Shop Road, which leads to Lawrence Tavern  and Mount Ogle District.

Motorists travelling from the direction of St Mary to Lawrence Tavern will take the first right turn, after the Toms River Bridge, onto the Unity to Toms River main road and continue through Florence Hill, Belmont and Oberlin District into Lawrence Tavern.
