There are traffic delays along Constant Spring Road in the vicinity of Market Place and Dunrobin caused by a collapse in a section of the recently reopaired roadway. The National Works Agency (NWA) says the delays are as a result of a section of roadway being reduced to single lane traffic following an embankment failure on the south-bound side, heading towards Half Way Tree.
Communication and Customer Services Manager at the NWA, Stephen Shaw says the roadway has been undermined by malfunctioning National Water Commission (NWC) pipelines. This caused a section of the roadway to collapse.
The NWC said its team should complete the works by about 7 p.m.
In the meantime, the NWC is also working to repair a broken water main at Manor Park, St. Andrew, which resulted in a traffic pile-up since this morning.
It is expected that the repairs to this line will be completed by the end of this evening.
