Major change to Mandela Highway traffic arrangements

The National Works Agency (NWA) has advised that effective Saturday, July 1, there will be additional changes to the movement of eastbound traffic along Mandela Highway in St Andrew.

The agency said the changes, which will be in addition to the existing arrangements, will remain in effect for a period of four months.  

Stephen Shaw, the NWA's Communication and Customer Service Manager, said the two lanes of traffic heading towards Six Miles will be diverted onto the newly-constructed 'Q Ramp' on the northern side of the highway expansion project, just beyond the Hydel Group of Schools.

The traffic on those lanes will return to the Mandela Highway in the vicinity of Tom Pringle Drive.  

Shaw said the changes are to facilitate the continuation of works on the current eastbound lanes.

He said safety features, such as temporary streetlights and road markings, are being installed on the detour road.
