Traffic changes for Mandela Highway

Published:Friday | November 3, 2017 | 5:32 PM

The National Works Agency (NWA) says it will be redirecting eastbound traffic along the Mandela Highway to a newly-paved section of the roadway between the East/West Highway off ramp and the Ferry Police Station.

The switch will take place at 10 o'clock Sunday morning.

The NWA's Communications Manager, Stephen Shaw, explains that traffic heading from the direction of Spanish Town and Portmore and traffic exiting the East/West Highway will now continue straight onto the new road.

Shaw says the traffic change is being implemented to facilitate the reconstruction of the existing eastbound carriageway.

The change will take place along a one kilometre stretch of the roadway.

Motorists are being advised to obey the speed limit and to be mindful that they are operating in a construction area as excavation works will be ongoing in the lanes to the right of the new carriageway.
