The National Works Agency (NWA) is reporting that property owners along Constant Spring Road in St Andrew will continue to experience issues with access to their premises as infrastructural improvement works remain ongoing.

NWA’s Communication and Customer Services Manager Stephen Shaw says the activities are now concentrated along the western side of the corridor, between Hillman Road and Mary Brown’s Corner.

Shaw says at least for the next week, the works will impede access to properties and side roads in that area.

He apologised for the inconvenience and says that every effort will be made, where possible, to allow persons access to properties from Constant Spring Road.

He says, however, that a schedule or regularity of access cannot be guaranteed, based on the nature of the works currently being undertaken.

Some 2.5 kilometers of water pipes and 600 meters of stormwater drains are now being installed, which will significantly advance the pipe-laying component of the Constant Spring Road Improvement Project.

In addition, as the NWA pushes to complete all pipe-laying and trenching activities in the upcoming weeks, works are scheduled for 24-hour shifts starting Monday, February 11 into the weekend.

As such residents should expect some level of noise from the work area during the nighttime.

Motorists and property owners are being urged to obey warning signs and exercise due caution when traversing the work zones.
