Traffic changes for Christiana come Monday

Published:Saturday | December 15, 2018 | 11:23 AM

Starting on Monday, Main Street in Christiana, Manchester will operate as a one-way flowing north, the National Works Agency (NWA) has announced.

The one-way system will be in operation for 24 hours each day and is scheduled to remain in place until February 4 next year.

The NWA says the change is aimed at regulating the increased traffic expected to flow through the town in the lead up to the busy Christmas period. 

HERE ARE THE CHANGES:

Main Street will only accommodate motorists travelling in a northerly direction from Mandeville towards Coleyville and further to Albert Town, Trelawny.

Motorists seeking to enter Christiana from the direction of Trelawny should travel along the Christiana By-Pass Road, turn left on to Wildman Street and continue on to Webb Road.

No right turn will be permitted from Webb Road and Wildman Street on to Main Street.

Only left turns will be allowed from these roadways on to Main Street.

Conversely, no left turns will be allowed from Jones Lane, Azan Lane and Moravia Road on to Main Street,” the agency said in a statement.

Nevermine Road, in the vicinity of Christiana High School, will be designated as a link road to the Christiana Bypass Road.

It is only to be used to exit the town.

Motorists will not be able to use Nevermine Road to get on to Main Street from the Christiana Bypass Road.

All vehicles entering the town via these roadways will only be allowed to turn right on to Main Street.
