The National Works Agency (NWA) says a section of Constant Spring Road in St Andrew between Shortwood Road and Dunrobin Avenue will be closed on Sunday, July 22 to facilitate the ongoing relocation of service poles by the Jamaica Public Service Company in relation to the Constant Spring Road Improvement Project.

The NWA says the closure will affect vehicular traffic travelling along both the southbound and northbound lanes.

The agency's Acting Communication Manager Ramona Lawson says the activity will be carried out between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Lawson says during that period the works will make the area unsafe and so motorists who do not need to use that section of the corridor, should avoid doing so.

She, however, explains that persons living along the affected section will be allowed access to their premises.

During the period of closure, traffic heading south towards Half Way Tree, from Mannings Hill Road or Manor Park will be detoured around the area through West Avenue on to Dukharan Avenue, Lindsay Crescent then left onto Dunrobin Avenue and back on to Constant Spring Road.

Motorists travelling from Shortwood Road can use Central Avenue to get onto West Avenue and subsequent roadways along the detour route.

The reverse obtains for persons travelling from Half Way Tree towards Shortwood Road, Manning Hills Road, Manor Park or locations further north.

The NWA says lane restrictions or closures are likely along roadways where major improvement works are currently being done including Hagley Park Road, Constant Spring Road, and the Mandela Highway.

As such, motorists are being urged to follow the media for updates as well as to proceed through the affected areas with caution and obey warning signs and the instruction of flag persons.
