THE National Works Agency (NWA) says it will this week ramp up activities in Barbican, St Andrew, to improve the flow of traffic. Additional sections of the corridor are expected to be paved over the next week, starting today.
According to NWA's manager for communication and customer services, Stephen Shaw, starting today, three sections of the roadway will be targeted for the ramped-up activities. These are the northern side of Barbican Road, between Birdsucker Lane and Jacks Hill Road; the eastern side of East Kings House Road, between the entrance to the Fontana Pharmacy and traffic lights; and in the centre of Barbican Square itself.
Shaw said some 480 meters of asphaltic concrete paving will be done in the areas over the next seven days, also starting today.
“In order to facilitate the planned works, access to a section of East Kings House Road will be restricted for vehicles travelling along Barbican Road from the direction of Jacks Hill Road. Motorists seeking to access East Kings House Road from the direction of Jacks Hill are being advised to use Salisbury Avenue, then onto Paddington Terrace to exit onto East Kings House Road,” said Shaw.
The NWA said the changes are not expected to affect motorists travelling from the direction of Birdsucker Lane towards Jacks Hill Road.
