The traffic signals at the intersection of Harbour and King Streets in Downtown Kingston are currently not working. As such, the National Works Agency (NWA) is reminding motorists to treat the intersection as a four-way stop.
Manager, Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw explains that the controller cabinet which houses equipment that operates the traffic signals was damaged during a recent motor vehicle collision.
The Agency’s initial attempts to repair the damaged cables on site did not resolve the issue and so a more extensive fix is now being pursued.
The location could benefit under a current NWA initiative to improve signal equipment island-wide on a phased basis. Until the necessary repairs are undertaken and the signals restored, motorists are being urged to approach the location with caution.
