The police are advising members of the public to anticipate delays when using Marcus Garvey Drive in the Corporate Area on Thursday, as a section of the roadway has been reduced to single-lane traffic flow to allow for underground repairs.

A section of Marcus Garvey Drive, one of the busiest corridors in the capital city, is presently under reconstruction as part of the expansion and dualisation of the Hagley Park Road/Three Miles intersection improvement works.

The remainder of Marcus Garvey Drive was recently expanded to a six-lane facility to more adequately handle the intense flow of peak hour traffic both into and out of the southern and south eastern sections of the city.
