KINGSTON, Jamaica — The National Works Agency (NWA) says access to some properties along Constant Spring Road will be restricted for at least another week due to ongoing infrastructural improvement works in the area.

NWA's Communication and Customer Services Manager, Stephen Shaw in a statement today explained that these activities are now concentrated along the western side of the corridor, between Hillman Road and Mary Brown's Corner. He said the works will impede access to properties and side roads in that section.

Shaw said every effort will be made, where possible, to allow persons access to properties from Constant Spring Road. He said, however, that a schedule or regularity of access cannot be guaranteed based on the nature of the works currently being undertaken.

Some 2.5 kilometres of water pipes and 600 metres of storm water drains are now being installed, which will significantly advance the pipe-laying component of the Constant Spring Road Improvement Project.

In addition, the NWA said as it pushes to complete all pipe-laying and trenching activities in the upcoming weeks, works are scheduled for 24-hour shifts starting today into the weekend. As such, residents should expect some level of noise from the work area during the night time.

The NWA apologised to the affected property owners and is urging them and motorists to obey the posted warning signs and exercise due caution when traversing the work zones.
