A warning has been sent out to motorists planning to use sections of Washington Boulevard in St Andrew as they hit the road, on Sunday, that they might want to find another route.

The National Works Agency says two of the westbound lanes on Washington Boulevard will be taken out of service tomorrow, in the vicinity of the RUBiS service station from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

According to the National Works Agency, the lane restrictions are to facilitate the continuation of repair works on the Rochester Gully Bridge.

Motorists heading towards Six Miles will only have use of one lane during the period and, as a result, Stephen Shaw, communications and customer service manager at the NWA, has appealed to them to use alternative routes, where possible, to avoid delays.

Shaw also urged motorists to obey all safety signs and instructions when using the corridor.

The NWA started works to effect much-needed repairs to the deck of the Rochester Gully Bridge in the summer, which has resulted in improvements. However, through monitoring, the Agency said it has seen where additional works are required and is continuing with the necessary intervention.
