KINGSTON, Jamaica — The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising motorists travelling westbound along the Washington Boulevard in St Andrew to take care when approaching the traffic signals at the intersection with Duhaney Drive as a section of the right lane has failed.

According to Communications and Customer Service Manager at the NWA Stephen Shaw the failure is as a result of a defect in the National Water Commission (NWC) sewer main which has created a large hole in the roadway about 200 metres before getting to the Duhaney Park traffic lights and the entrance to Cooreville Gardens.

The NWC has been notified of the matter, Shaw said.

In the interim the NWA is advising motorists using the Washington Boulevard that the exclusive use of the extreme left lane by public passenger buses will be discontinued until the problem is resolved.
