Pipe-laying on Windward Road to affect traffic
The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising motorists using Windward Road that works to improve the water supply infrastructure along a section of the roadway has begun and may cause occasional traffic delays over the next 20 days.
Manager, Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw, is alerting the motoring public to the possibility of restrictions in traffic flow, particularly when pipe-laying activities are concentrated in locations close to intersections in a bid that motorists exercise due patience and caution when approaching these areas.
Shaw said the pipe-laying works commenced along the corridor on Tuesday, in the vicinity of Michael Manley Boulevard and will progress westward towards the Mountain View intersection.
He explains that in addition to the laying of six-inch water pipes along the corridor, pipelines will also be laid across the roadway at some points and this activity will not only result in traffic delays, but lane restrictions as well.
