KINGSTON, Jamaica — Motorists are being advised to expect additional traffic changes and restrictions on Hagley Park Road in St Andrew as infrastructural works have intensified on the road improvement project, resulting in lane restrictions and delays.

The National Works Agency (NWA) says, where possible, motorists should use alternate routes or approaches to access some locations along the thoroughfare.

Manager, communication and customer services at NWA, Stephen Shaw explains that extensive pipe-laying works to include sewer and water pipe installation and drainage improvement are now being carried out at various points along the corridor.

He says, as a result, the roadway has had to either be closed or reduced to single lane traffic at some points to facilitate the ongoing works.

Currently, activities on the project are concentrated along the section of Hagley Park Road between the ATL Automotive Dealership at Grayden Avenue and the National Works Agency's Regional Office in the vicinity of Ambrook Lane.

As such only one lane of traffic is being accommodated travelling from Adlington Avenue towards the Eastwood Park Road intersection, NWA says.

The agency is urging motorists to stay tuned to the media for updates.
