The National Works Agency (NWA) says that a section of Spanish Town Road, St.Andrew, will be closed to vehicular traffic this weekend. The road will be closed between the intersection of Weymouth Drive and Six Miles.
Manager, Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw says that the stretch of road is being closed to facilitate the replacing of a failed stormwater culvert. The failed culvert has been the source of flooding along Spanish Town Road over the last month.
The work to replace the defective culvert will begin at 6:00 am on Saturday. This will result in the eastbound carriageway (lanes to Kingston) being closed to vehicular traffic. Motorists wishing to travel from the direction of Six Miles towards Portia Simpson Miller Square are being advised to do so, via Washington Boulevard and Weymouth Drive.
On Sunday, the westbound carriageway will be closed. Motorists wishing to travel from the direction of Portia Simpson Miller Square towards Six Miles are advised to travel via Weymouth Drive and Washington Boulevard.
