KINGSTON, Jamaica — The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising motorists that the section of Constant Spring Road between Shortwood Road and Dunrobin Avenue will be closed this Sunday to facilitate the ongoing relocation of service poles by the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPSCo) in relation to the Constant Spring Road Improvement Project.

The closure will affect vehicular traffic travelling along the southbound and northbound lanes.

Acting manager, communication and customer services at the NWA, Ramona Lawson, explained that the activity will be carried out between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm on Sunday.

The works will make the area unsafe and so motorists who do not need to use that section of the corridor are advised to avoid doing so. However, individuals living along the affected section will be allowed access to their premises, Lawson said.

The agency advised that during the period of closure, traffic heading south towards Half-Way-Tree from Mannings Hill Road or Manor Park will be detoured around the area through West Avenue on to Dukharan Avenue, Lindsay Crescent, then left onto Dunrobin Avenue and back on to Constant Spring Road.
