Motorists using Constant Spring Road should again expect delays in the vicinity of the Marketplace this afternoon because a section of the roadway has collapsed.
In a statement this afternoon, Communication and Customer Services Manager at the National Works Agency, NWA, Stephen Shaw, says a section of the newly paved roadway collapsed because of malfunctioning National Water Commission, NWC, pipeline.

The collapse happened in the vicinity of the Rubis Gas Station.
Mr. Shaw says the south-bound lane, heading towards Half Way Tree has been reduced to single lane traffic.
Mr. Shaw is advising motorists to use alternative routes, where possible.
He’s also advising motorists to exercise extreme caution while using the roadway.
In the meantime, the NWC is also working to repair a broken water main at Manor Park in St. Andrew, which resulted in a traffic pile-up this morning.
It is expected that the repairs to this line will be completed by the end of this evening.
In a statement this morning, the NWA said traffic restrictions that were imposed last week on Constant Spring Road would again take effect from 10 tonight until 4 Monday morning.
