KINGSTON, Jamaica – A section of Hagley Park Road heading from Half-Way-Tree in the direction of Three Miles will be closed between Waltham Park Road and Portia Simpson Miller Square all day tomorrow, Saturday, November 8, the National Works Agency (NWA) has advised.

The closure is to facilitate the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) removing service poles along the area.

According to NWA Communication and Customer Services Manager, Stephen Shaw the activity which will go on up the end of the day tomorrow will allow for the completion of sidewalk construction works.

Shaw is however reminding the travelling public that the closure will not affect access to the overpass bridge which takes traffic from Half-Way-Tree towards Portmore as the bridge will remain opened during the period.

Important finalising works continue elsewhere on the Hagley Park Road improvement project as the sewer main is now being extended onto side roads and the installation of street lights is currently 75 per cent complete, Shaw said. A mid-November timeline has been set for the “substantial completion” of the US$56 million-dollar project.
