KINGSTON, Jamaica — The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising the motoring public that starting today; traffic will be diverted from a section of Constant Spring Road to facilitate pipe-laying works between the Oakwood Apartments and Shortwood Road.

The NWA in a release this morning said the traffic change will affect motorists travelling in the south-bound lane towards Half-Way-Tree and will be in place for the next seven days.

Motorists will be re-directed onto Central Avenue, East Avenue, then Goodwood Terrace to exit onto Constant Spring Road in the vicinity of Telstar Cable Limited.

Acting manager, communication and customer services at the NWA, Ramona Lawson explained that as activities increase on the major road construction projects across the Corporate Area, motorists should, from time to time, expect traffic restrictions along some sections of the affected corridors in aid of advancing the works.

She said that a major part of the current activities on both the Hagley Park and Constant Spring road improvement projects involve the installation of sewer and water pipes as well as storm water culverts.

These works, she said, are being undertaken, in some sections, along the center of the existing roadway which makes lane restrictions unavoidable.

The NWA said similar works are currently being carried out along Hagley Park Road between Waltham Park Road and Queen's Avenue.

Where works are in progress, the NWA said it endeavours to maintain two driving lanes, where possible, and provide suitable alternate routes where lanes have to be closed temporarily.

Pipe-laying work on both major projects is expected to go on for the next few months, advised the agency.

Motorists are being reminded to proceed with caution through the construction zones and obey posted warning signs and the instruction of flag persons.
