Windward Rd/Mountain View Ave intersection to close Thursday - NWA

The National Works Agency (NWA) has announced that it will be implementing temporary traffic restrictions at the intersection of Windward Road and Mountain View Avenue on Thursday.

The NWA, in a news release said the restrictions are to facilitate ongoing works by the National Water Commission (NWC) that are being carried out as part of a larger rehabilitation effort.

It has advised that the restrictions will be in place from 8:00 pm Thursday until 6:00 Friday morning.

The works agency said the NWC has been working to reconnect pipelines to a newly installed system on Windward Road.

As such, the ongoing works will include the excavation of the road surface which will restrict the movement of traffic from Mountain View Avenue onto Windward Road. Delays may also be experienced by motorists travelling along Windward Road, the NWA said.

Motorists travelling along Mountain View Avenue wishing to access Windward Road to continue eastward, are advised to turn left onto Cartridge Road then right onto Range Crescent, another right onto Norman Terrace continuing onto Windward Road.

Individuals wishing to travel westward from Mountain View Avenue can use Langston Road and Homestead Road, exiting on Windward Road in the vicinity of the One-One-One (Pentecostal) church, the NWA said.

It is advising affected persons to obey the instructions of posted warning signs and to exercise caution while travelling within the construction zone.
