The National Works Agency (NWA) says two of the westbound lanes on Washington Boulevard in St Andrew, in the vicinity of the Rubis service station, will be taken out of service on Sunday, November 22 to facilitate repair works.

The restriction will run between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

The lane restrictions are to facilitate the continuation of repair works on the Rochester Gully Bridge.

Motorists heading towards Six Miles will only have use of one lane during the period and as such Manager, Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw, is encouraging drivers, where possible, to use alternative routes to avoid delays.

He is also reminding motorists to obey all safety signs and instructions when using the corridor. 

The NWA started works to effect much-needed repairs to the deck of the Rochester Gully Bridge in the summer, which has resulted in improvements.

However, through monitoring, the agency sees where additional works are required and are continuing with the necessary intervention.
