TRAFFIC restrictions are planned for sections of Camp Road in Kingston over this Heroes Day weekend in order to complete pipe-laying works and start the installation of sewer pipes.

National Works Agency (NWA) Communication and Customer Services Manager Stephen Shaw, said the restrictions will come into effect today, October 19 at 8:00 am where the Camp Road/Arnold Road intersection will be closed to vehicular traffic up to 6:00 pm to facilitate the installation of sewer pipes.

“As a result of the intersection closure, the movement of vehicles between both roadways will be restricted. Motorists wanting to access Arnold Road from the direction of Tom Redcam Drive are, therefore, being asked to do so using Marescaux Road and Connelly Avenue, while Arnold Road can be accessed via Hope Street, Anderson and James roads from the direction of South Camp Road,” the NWA said.

Additionally, the section of Camp Road between the existing JDF Cotton Tree Gate and Arnold Road will be closed to vehicular traffic on tomorrow October 20 and Monday, October 21 between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm. The road closure is to facilitate the connection of fire hydrants to the newly-installed water main.

“At the end of the weekend's activities the most critical aspect of the sewer works would have been completed. This component of the project is scheduled to wrap up in mid-November,“ said the NWA.

According to the NWA, the US$2.2-million roadwork is about 65 per cent complete. Other current activities on the project, it said, include construction works on a boundary wall at Up Park Camp's new Arnold Road entrance, as well as the JDF's sentry building.
