More traffic restrictions for Constant Spring Road

Published:Friday | July 20, 2018 | 11:16 PM

The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising the motoring public that the section of Constant Spring Road between Shortwood Road and Dunrobin Avenue in St Andrew will be closed to through traffic tomorrow.

This is to facilitate the ongoing relocation of service poles by the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPSCo) in relation to the Constant Spring Road Improvement Project.

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

Acting Manager, Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Ramona Lawson explains that the activity will be carried out between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The works, she said, 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, explained 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 continues to advise the motoring public that 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 updated advisories as well as to proceed through the affected areas with caution and obey posted warning signs and the instruction of flag persons," a press release from the agency said.
