The intersection of Windward Road and Mountain View Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic this Sunday, September 9 by the National Works Agency (NWA).

The road will be closed between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

The NWA says the traffic change is to facilitate the connection and testing of new National Water Commission (NWC) pipes.

Motorists travelling along Mountain View Avenue wishing to access Windward Road, to continue eastward, can turn left onto Cartridge Road then right onto Range Crescent, turn right onto Norman Terrace continuing onto Windward Road.

Persons wishing to travel westward from Mountain View Avenue can use Langston Road and Homestead Road, exiting on Windward Road in the vicinity of One-One-One Church.

The NWA points out that the road work along Windward Road is being done under the Major Infrastructure Development Programme at a cost of $141 million dollars.

New water lines are being installed at a cost of a further 35 million dollars.

NWA is advising persons who may travel through the construction zone this Sunday to obey the instructions of warning signs and to exercise caution while travelling along the corridor.
