Nolan Hill to Border main road in St Andrew closed

The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising that the Nolan Hill to Border main road in St Andrew has been completely closed to the public so as to carry out repairs on a breakaway in the Mount Ogle district.

The NWA says the closure will last for a month.

Previously, only pedestrian traffic was allowed on the road.

The road was closed to vehicular traffic in June in light of the breakaway.

The NWA says since then the roadway has been further undermined due to earth movements, necessitating a complete closure of the affected section of the corridor.  

Commuters travelling from Stony Hill to Mount Ogle are being reminded that they should turn left at the Stony Hill Square onto the Stony Hill to Parks main road, continue to the Cavaliers District, then onto the St Christopher Glengoffe road, also known as ‘Burn Shop Road’, which leads to Lawrence Tavern/Mount Ogle District.

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

The project which is being executed through a $34.4 million contract is scheduled to be completed by the end of September.
