Between now and Sunday, September 1, traffic will not be allowed to use the roads at ground level at Portia Simpson Miller Square, also called Three Miles, in St. Andrew. A major construction project including a ‘fly-over’ or overpass in one of the Corporate Area’s busiest intersections bridge has been taking place there. However, recently, some traffic has been allowed to use the roads.
Manager, Communication and Customer Services at the National Works Agency (NWA) Stephen Shaw, in a release Wednesday afternoon, August 28 says effective immediately no vehicular traffic will be allowed in the areas beneath the bridges, as the ramped-up activities in preparation for the new school year are being hampered.
He explains that significant paving works are taking place in the area and that unruly motorists are putting at risk the stated schedule for the full re-opening.
Mr. Shaw says that the closure of the areas beneath the bridges at Portia Simpson Miller Square will be in effect until Sunday, September 1.
The works at ground level also include the installation of Traffic Signals, which will be used to regulate the flow of vehicles and pedestrians in the area.
