A section of Hagley Park Road, in the vicinity of the Cockburn Gardens Primary and Junior High School, will be closed this evening, June 18, 2020. The closure will commence at 8:00 p.m. and the roadway is scheduled to be reopened tomorrow morning (June 19) at 5:00.
Manager of Communication and Customer Services at the National Works Agency (NWA), Stephen Shaw says that the closure is to facilitate pavement repairs by the contractor, China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC). He says that the works will include the excavation of the section of roadway, the strengthening of the base and the repaving of the corridor with asphaltic concrete.
The closure will affect traffic exiting Spanish Town Road onto Hagley Park Road, heading towards Half Way Tree. These motorists will be diverted onto Olympic Way then turn right onto White Wing Avenue, continuing to Mahoe Drive and exiting on Hagley Park Road.
The NWA is encouraging motorists to exercise caution during the period of closure and to obey the instructions of flag persons and posted posted warning signs.
