The National Works Agency (NWA) has said that while many of the traffic lights are back in working order at major intersections in the Kingston metropolitan area, the return of other signals will be dependent on the full restoration of electricity.
“The 27 that are up and running, we have electricity going to that location so of the remaining 48, we have 43 dependent on power to be up and functioning,” Senior Communication Officer at the NWA, Colin Morrison told JIS News.
Some five traffic installations have been substantially damaged and will be in need of major repair.
Commenting on the situation regarding the traffic signals outside of Kingston, Mr. Morrison said that a report was being compiled by an officer stationed in Montego Bay, St. James. “The assessment is being conducted at this moment,” he said.
In the meantime, the NWA is urging motorists to proceed with caution at intersections where the traffic signals are out.
