More Route Changes For Corporate Area Motorists This Weekend

by September 19th, 2018

The National Works Agency (NWA) says corporate area motorists are to expect more changes starting this weekend.


This comes as the agency continues to tweak its traffic management plan in Kingston and St. Andrew.


As of this Sunday, September 23, turning restrictions will be implemented along the section of Constant Spring Road, between the bridge at Market Place and the Dunrobin Avenue Intersection.


Manager, Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw says the change is being implemented at this time, in order to reduce vehicular conflicts along this stretch of roadway.


He explains that with the traffic now being rerouted away from the Portia Simpson Miller Square, Washington Boulevard and Dunrobin Avenue are critical to the movement of vehicular traffic.


The agency states that the constant right turning movement across Constant Spring Road is impeding the flow of traffic heading into Half Way Tree and New Kingston from the direction of the Dunrobin Avenue/Constant Spring Road Intersection.


Mr. Shaw says that this restriction will allow the NWA to have two lanes of traffic heading south (towards Half Way Tree) in the mornings and one lane heading north. The situation will be reversed for the afternoon peak flow.


Resulting from these restriction motorists will not be able to make a right turn from the Merl Grove High School or CVM Tv onto Constant Spring Road.


Persons who wish to make such a manoeuvre are being advised to travel along Dubnrobin Avenue, Red Hills Road, Eastward Park Road and onto Constant Spring Road.


Mr. Shaw says that the NWA will make this change permanent as part of the overall plan to improve traffic flow from Manor Park towards Half Way Tree and New Kingston. A median barrier will be erected to prevent conflicting movements.
