Emer­gency work un­der way on Con­stant Spring Road af­ter sewer line col­lapses

Jamaica Gleaner - - FRONT PAGE -

EMER­GENCY WORK is now un­der way on Con­stant Spring Road in St An­drew, where a col­lapsed sewer line caused a section of the road­way to cave in near Market Place, fright­en­ing sev­eral mo­torists in early morn­ing traf­fic yes­ter­day and caus­ing lengthy de­lays.

The col­lapse of the sewer line has re­sulted in the clo­sure of three of five avail­able lanes along the road­way.

Man­ager of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Cus­tomer Ser­vices at the Na­tional Works Agency (NWA) Stephen Shaw said the lanes will re­main closed to ve­hic­u­lar traf­fic for at least the next three days while the re­pairs are be­ing car­ried out.

The NWA is work­ing with the Na­tional Water Com­mis­sion to have the sewer line re­paired and the road­way re­in­stated.

Mo­torists are be­ing ad­vised to use al­ter­na­tive routes, where pos­si­ble. Those who de­cide to use Con­stant Spring Road should ex­pect de­lays. One of the avail­able lanes will al­low for north­bound traf­fic and the other for south­bound traf­fic.
