The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising the public that a section of the westbound carriageway of Spanish Town Road, in the vicinity of Callaloo Mews, will be closed this weekend. The closure, which will be in effect from 8:00 a.m. Saturday, February 3 to 5:00 p.m. Sunday, February 4, 2024, is to facilitate the replacement of a pipe culvert across the roadway.

Manager of Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw says that a total of two culverts will be replaced, at the location, as part of an eight weeks long contract. The first culvert, which is in the vicinity of Louis Industrial, will be replaced this weekend while the other, located across from Callaloo Mews Housing Scheme, will be replaced on a subsequent weekend.

During the period of the works the westbound lanes heading towards Six Miles will be closed to vehicular traffic. Vehicles travelling in a westerly direction will be diverted onto one lane of the eastbound carriageway. Vehicles travelling in an easterly direction towards Three Miles will use the other two lanes of the eastbound carriageway.

Mr. Shaw says that once the culverts have been installed, the roadway will be reinstated and paved with asphaltic concrete.

The NWA is advising motorists to exercise caution while traversing the area, during the period of the works, and to obey the instructions of flag persons and posted warning signs.
