The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising that effective tommorrow, Thursday, February 4, 2021, a section of the Dunbar’s River to Chantilly roadway in Westmoreland, will be converted to a way one corridor. This, as the NWA is now effecting repairs to the targeted section of roadway. The new one way system will be in effect over the next two weeks, between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm daily.
Community Relations Officer at the NWA Western Region, Janel Ricketts, says that during this period, only motorists travelling in a north easterly direction, from the Dunbars River traffic light, towards Petersfield, will be allowed to access this section of the corridor. Motorists travelling towards Dunbars River, from the Petersfield direction, should use the alternate route through the Chantilly community.
Ms. Ricketts says that the Dunbar’s River to Chantilly roadway is being rehabilitated at a cost of just over $27 million, under the Maintenance of Secondary Roads Programme. The project involves drainage improvement and the reshaping and asphalting of the roadway using Asphaltic Concrete Overlay. The project, which is now in the preliminary stage, is expected to be completed within another four months.
Motorists are being advised to obey the posted warning signs and instructionos of flag persons.
