KINGSTON, Jamaica - The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising motorists to expect traffic delays while travelling along Dukharan Avenue in St Andrew, effective Tuesday, October 2.

The closure, NWA said, is to facilitate the construction of a drain across the roadway, just beyond its intersection with Lindsay Crescent.

The closure will be in effect for a period of three weeks and will result in the following traffic changes: Dukharan Avenue will be one-way northbound, ie traffic will be allowed to enter Dukharan Avenue from Dunrobin Avenue, but will not be allowed to exit Dukharan Avenue onto Dunrobin Avenue.

Motorists wishing to access Dunrobin Avenue from Dukharan Avenue will therefore be asked to use Lindsay Crescent.

Full vehicular access will be restored to Dukharan Avenue on October 23, manager of Communication and Customer Services, Stephen Shaw said.

The works to be undertaken on Dukharan Avenue form part of remedial activities for the Washington Boulevard/Dunrobin Avenue Improvement Project which was completed in October last year, and will be carried out by contractors Surrey Paving and Aggregates Company Limited.
