Traffic to be diverted along Constant Spring Road as part of road improvement work

The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising that over the next seven days, traffic will be diverted from a section of Constant Spring Road, St Andrew, to facilitate pipe-laying works between Oakwood Apartments and Shortwood Road.

The traffic change will affect motorists travelling in the south-bound lane towards Half-Way-Tree.

Motorists will be redirected on to Central Avenue, East Avenue, then Goodwood Terrace to exit on Constant Spring Road in the vicinity of Telstar Cable Limited.

Acting manager of Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Ramona Lawson, explained that as activities increase on the major road-construction projects across the Corporate Area, motorists should, from time to time, expect traffic restrictions along some sections of the affected corridors in aid of advancing the works.

She noted that a major part of the current activities on both the Hagley Park and Constant Spring Road Improvement projects involves the installation of sewer and water pipes and storm-water culverts.

These works, she said, are being undertaken in some sections along the centre of the existing roadway, which makes lane restrictions unavoidable.

Similar works are currently being carried out along Hagley Park Road between Waltham Park Road and Queen's Avenue.

"Where works are in progress, the NWA endeavours to maintain two driving lanes, where possible, and provide suitable alternate routes where lanes have to be closed temporarily. Pipe-laying works on both major projects are expected to go on for the next few months," a press release from the agency said.

"Motorists are being reminded to proceed with caution through the construction zones and obey posted warning signs and the instruction of flag persons."
