The National Works Agency (NWA) says motorists will have to use alternative routes when entering or leaving the town of May Pen, Clarendon, from today to Friday, December 14.

The NWA and the National Water Commission (NWC) will be carrying out pipe replacement works between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on the specified days at the Paisley Avenue/Trenton Road intersection, which will restrict access to the town from the popular approach.

When entering the town, during the period of works, motorists may travel via the Bustamante Highway, Glenmuir Road and Anderson Drive. The reverse obtains when leaving the town. Motorists may use Hazard Drive and Trenton Road to get on to the Bustamante Highway when travelling from Palmers Cross or Chateau. The restriction does not affect motorists travelling from Four Paths or Osborne Store.

The pipe works form part of ancillary works under the Palmers Cross - Main Street road rehabilitation project. The project, which is now 89 per cent complete, involves the overlay of 3km of roadway between Hazard Drive and Guinep Tree as well as critical drainage and water supply improvement works.

The $98.4 million project is one of 66 being implemented under the Government of Jamaica's $5.4 billion Major Infrastructure Development Programme (MIDP). Motorists are being urged to obey the road closure sign during the period work is taking place.
