One-way system to ease congestion in Santa Cruz
THE National Works Agency (NWA) on Monday introduced a one-way system for vehicular traffic in the town of Santa Cruz, St Elizabeth, in order to better regulate traffic flows through the town for the Christmas and New Year holidays.
The one-way system will be in operation between the hours of 7:00 am and 8:00 pm Mondays to Saturdays, until January 6, 2014, the NWA said yesterday.
Resulting from the changes, the following will obtain: Main Street from the intersection of Institution Drive and Coke Drive will accommodate motorists heading in a westerly direction (from Goshen). No right turn will therefore be allowed from Coke Drive onto Main Street.
Motorists wishing to enter Santa Cruz or beyond, from the direction of Lacovia, will have to make a left at the traffic signals at the intersection of Main Street and the bypass. No right turn will be allowed onto Market Street from the bypass, and motorists wishing to enter the business district from this direction will have to use Institution Drive, where a right turn will be allowed.
Motorists who wish to travel to the direction of Malvern are being advised to use Retirement Road or travel to the end of the bypass, turn right at the Total Gas Station and then turn left on Centre Road.
