Savage Pen Road in St Andrew closed for paving works

January 17, 2021

The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising that effective Sunday, January 17, the Savage Pen Road in St Andrew will be closed to vehicular traffic.

The roadway will be closed between the hours of 7:00 a.m and 4:00 p.m.

The closure is necessary to facilitate paving activities associated with the rehabilitation that is now underway at that location.

The roadway is being rehabilitated to serve as an alternative to Gordon Town Road that has been impassable since November 8, 2020.

The NWA says the project involves the cutting, widening and reshaping of the roadway, drainage improvement, the construction of retaining walls and the installation of guardrails where necessary. The roadway which is 1.6 kilometres in length will be paved with asphaltic concrete.
