Major Drain Work, on Mannings Hill Road in Jamaica W.I.

A very busy roadway is now closed in the vicinity of Constant Spring Grove, Kingston 8, St. Andrew to enable waste water drain to be constructed.  A fording there is in need of rehabilitation.  The problem is a 10 inches water main,  other smaller pipes, telephone and other underground cables in the way … causing a headache for crews excavating the drainage. Traffic is diverted and closure is estimated for 90 days.

We hope engineering problems will be solved quickly, so road can be reopened soon.

See picture of work in progress as small businesses lose sales income etc. due to the disruption.
