Traffic delays expected along Windward Road over next few weeks

The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising motorists using Windward Road, Kingston, that work to improve the water supply infrastructure along a section of the roadway has begun and may cause occasional traffic delays over the next 20 days.

Manager of Communication and Customer Services at the NWA Stephen Shaw is alerting the motoring public to the possibility of restrictions in traffic flow, particularly when pipe-laying activities are concentrated in locations close to intersections, in a bid to compel motorists to exercise due patience and caution when approaching these areas.

Shaw said the pipe-laying works commenced along the corridor on Tuesday in the vicinity of Michael Manley Boulevard and will progress westward towards the Mountain View intersection.

 

LANE RESTRICTIONS

 

He explained that in addition to the laying of six-inch water pipes along the corridor, pipe-lines will also be laid across the roadway at some points. this activity will not only result in traffic delays, but lane restrictions.

The NWA expects, however, that the more intrusive part of the work will be completed within a month and encourages the public to monitor the media for further bulletins on the impact should this become necessary.

The pipe improvement works are being carried out ahead of a major project to completely rehabilitate a 1.2-kilometre section of Windward Road between Mountain View Avenue and Michael Manley Boulevard in Rockfort.

Both the pipe-laying and roadwork components of the project are valued at $178 million. The project is one of 71 medium-sized works currently being executed islandwide under the $5.3-billion Major Infrastructure Development Programme
