Effective yesterday (May 10), electronic signals were activated at four additional intersections along the Rose Hall main road in St. James.
The intersections are at Coral Gardens, Half Moon Resort, Shoppes of Rose Hall, and Spot Valley.
According to Community Relations Officer with the National Works Agency’s (NWA) Western Region, Janel Ricketts, the agency is seeking to improve the safety and ease with which persons use the roadway.
She explained that some six other intersections along the corridor already have traffic signals, five of which have been activated.
The sixth, which is located at Palmyra Resort, will be commissioned into service as soon as that resort opens its doors, she informed.
The Rose Hall main road forms part of Segment 2A of the Northern Coastal Highway Improvement Project (NCHIP), which was undertaken at a cost of approximately US$50 million.
The project involved the widening and realignment of the 27-kilometre stretch between Greenside in Trelawny and the roundabout at the Sangster International Airport, of which 13 kilometres were dualised.
The roadway has been equipped with two underpasses, numerous access points, bus bays, improved drainage structures and a number of safety features.
