Weekend traffic changes for Mandela Highway: Lane restriction implemented

Published:Saturday | February 17, 2018 | 10:21 AM

The National Works Agency (NWA) says motorists who are planning to travel into Kingston using the Mandela Highway over the weekend that there will be a lane restriction when exiting the Q-Ramp.

It says the right lane of the Q-Ramp, which is the newly-constructed section of the roadway between the Ferry community and the Nestle building heading towards Kingston, will be closed to facilitate the installation of a pipe culvert.

Manager of Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw, says the activity is to accommodate the connection of NWC water mains to the Ferry Pen Industrial Development site, where Nestle is headquartered.

Shaw says the works are expected to be undertaken over two days and the lane restriction will be in effect from 8 o'clock tomorrow morning with both lanes being put back into operation by midnight on Sunday. 

Motorists are being urged to obey the instructions of posted warning signs and flagmen during the period of works.
