The diversion of traffic from a section of the Port Henderson main road, in Portmore, St. Catherine will continue for another week in an effort to advance road reconstruction works on the MIDP project.

Communication and Customer Services Manager at the National Works Agency (NWA), Stephen Shaw, explains that the westbound carriageway of the Port Henderson main road is now accommodating traffic travelling in both directions.

He however says that in order to facilitate ongoing activities along a section of the roadway, traffic heading from the Bayside round-a-bout has been diverted onto Germaine Road to travel via South Circle and Newland Road towards Naggo Head square.

The detour will be in effect between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. each day so as not to interrupt the flow of peak hour traffic. The change will remain in place for another week and will affect the normal routing of some public passenger vehicles.

The NWA apologizes for the inconvenience this may cause for some road users. The Port Henderson project is 50% complete, with the concentration now on completing the 1.3 kilometer four-lane dual carriageway between the Bayside Roundabout and Naggo Head square.
