The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising commuters that a section of the eastbound corridor of Spanish Town Road, heading towards Portia Simpson Miller Square, will be closed to vehicular traffic for two days this weekend. The closure, which will commence at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 27, will be between Penwood Road and Diamond Avenue. The roadway is scheduled to be reopened on Sunday, June 28, at 6:00 p.m.
Manager, Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw says that the stretch of road is being closed to facilitate excavation works necessary for the removal and replacement of damaged culvert pipes.The failed culvert has been the source of flooding along Spanish Town Road over the last month.
During the period of closure, motorists travelling from the direction of Six Miles towards Portia Simpson Miller Square are being advised to use Chesterfield Drive and Marcus Garvey Drive, continuing to Portia Simpson Miller Square.
Motorists are also being urged to exercise caution during the period of closure and to obey the instructions of flag persons and posted warning signs.
