NWA must be consulted before pedestrian crossings are installed

Individuals and organisations planning to install pedestrian crossings in their communities on Labour Day are being reminded to seek permission from the National Works Agency (NWA).



The reminder came from chairman of the National Workers Week-Labour Day Committee, Dahlia Harris, who says there are legal requirements and specifications that must be followed when installing pedestrian crossings.



In addition, Harris says it is important to notify the NWA so as to prevent the installation of crossings at unsafe and unauthorized locations.



Labour Day will be observed next Friday under the theme: Take a Stand…Beautify our Land.



Speaking at a recent Jamaica Information Service Think Tank, Harris encouraged Jamaicans to get involved in Labour Day activities, but emphasised that the police must be notified about projects that are likely to affect the free flow of traffic.
