MANCHESTER, Jamaica — The National Works Agency (NWA) says that a one-way system will be implemented in the town of Christiana, Manchester, as of Monday December 9, to better manage the increased traffic that is anticipated in the town centre during the upcoming holiday period.

NWA said the one-way system will operate on a 24-hour basis and will remain in place until Monday, February 3, 2020.

The agency informed that the major traffic change is the conversion of a section of Main Street between Apple Tree Plaza and the Christiana police station to one-way accommodating motorists travelling in a northerly direction towards Christiana High School.

NWA Southern Region Communication Officer, Howard Hendriks, explained that motorists travelling north along Main Street may use the Christiana High School road to access the bypass.

He added that right turns from Webb Road and Wildman Street onto Main Street will be restricted as a result of the northerly one-way flow. Motorists travelling along either of these roadways, wishing to enter the town centre, will therefore have to use the one-way to travel north and get back onto the Bypass via the school road, NWA said.

Additionally, the agency said that no left turn will be allowed from Jones Lane, Azan Lane and Moravia Road onto Main Street.

NWA said motorists travelling from the direction of Trelawny along Main Street will only be allowed as far as the Post Office. Those wishing to enter the town centre will have to do so via the bypass then make a left turn at the signalised intersection at Apple Tree Plaza back onto Main Street, the agency added.
