Officials say that motorists traveling eastbound from the roundabout will divert right onto Coronation Road, then east on Factory Road, before returning to Old Parham Road via Nugent Avenue.
Northbound traffic on Independence Drive intending to go east will be made to divert right onto Factory Road (north of the War Memorial), then left onto Coronation Road. 
According to officials, drivers going north on Independence Drive and intending to turn left at the roundabout will have to divert left onto Church Street, right on Church Lane, then right on Newgate Street, and left on Cross Street in order to get to Friars Hill Road.
