The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising motorists that the intersection of Windward Road and Mountain View Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic, this Sunday, September 9. The closure will be for nine (9) hours, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Manager of Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw, says the intersection will be closed to facilitate the connection and testing of new National Water Commission (NWC) pipes. He says the works will include the excavation of the road surface, at intervals, and are part of the Windward Road Rehabilitation project, which will see the reconstruction of a section of the roadway and the installation of new NWC infrastructure.
Resulting from the closure, traffic will be prohibited from passing through the Windward Road / Mountain View Avenue intersection. Motorists travelling along Mountain View Avenue wishing to access Windward Road, to continue eastward, can turn left onto Cartridge Road then right onto Range Crescent, turn right onto Norman Terrace continuing onto Windward Road. Persons wishing to travel westward from Mountain View Avenue can use Langston Road and Homestead Road, exiting on Windward Road in the vicinity of One-One-One Church.
The road work along Windward Road is being done under the Major Infrastructure Development Programme (MIDP) at a cost of 141 million dollars. New water lines are being installed at a cost of a further 35 million dollars.
NWA is advising persons who may travel through the construction zone this Sunday, to obey the instructions of posted warning signs and to exercise caution while travelling along the corridor.
