The National Works Agency (NWA) will be implementing a one-way rotary system for motorists in Port Maria, in order to improve the flow of traffic in that town.
The NWA’s Senior Communications Officer, Collin Morrison, told JIS News that the system would be put in place on the completion of a new bridge, which is being constructed simultaneously with major rehabilitation work currently being carried out as part of the implementation of the Northern Coastal Highway project between Ocho Rios and Port Antonio.
He pointed out that the old bridge in the town has been closed to the public to facilitate the construction of a new one at the same site, adding that when completed the new structure would be used in conjunction with another recently constructed bridge.
Mr. Morrison pointed out that the new bridge would be completed in six months, adding that the closure of the old bridge had made it necessary to implement a change to the traffic flow in the town.
Turning to the progress of Segment Three of the Northern Coastal Highway, Mr. Morrison said the project was on target, and that completion was scheduled for June 2008.
