Motorists alerted to single-lane traffic, as road works continue in Willikies, on Valley Road, and along Sir Sidney Walling Highway

Motorists and others who traverse the roadways will be impacted by work on three separate thoroughfares across the island.

According to the Project Implementation Management Unit in the Ministry of Works, “Ongoing works … will result in single-lane traffic along the northern section of Valley Road North, Sir Sydney Walling Highway, and along the western section of Willikies Main Road.”

The traffic disruptions commenced yesterday, February 28, and will run through the week, ending on Saturday March 5.

As a result, traffic will be controlled by flag bearers on Valley Road North, between Valley Church and the Sugar Ridge Hotel, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Further, the Unit says there will be construction of junction boxes on the road shoulder between the Transport Board Office and the intersection of Sir George Walter Highway.  Therefore, when the concrete is being poured, single-lane travel will be in effect.

Later in the week, from Willikies westward, single-lane traffic will be effected in order to facilitate asphalt works.  Again, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the traffic will be controlled by flag persons, the Unit says.

Meanwhile, Alex Browne, the United Progressive Party Candidate for St. Phillip’s North, says he is thankful the main road into Willikies is being given some attention.  He says the roads in the constituency are deplorable and in very urgent need of repair.
