The Police High Command is vowing that it’ll be establishing a strong, permanent presence along critical traffic corridors of the Corporate Area.
This in anticipation of the additional traffic which is expected at the beginning of the new academic year on Monday.
Major roadworks currently taking place across sections of the Corporate Area have heightened fears that traffic will be extremely difficult when the new school year begins next week.
Head of the Police Traffic Division, Senior Superintendent Calvin Allen, says a plan is in place to militate against undue traffic pile-ups.
Speaking today on Cliff Hughes Online, SSP Allen gave the assurance that there’ll be more than enough police personnel on the nation’s streets to manage the flow of traffic.
SSP Allen says a plan is in place to manage traffic on the usually busy Constant Spring Road thoroughfare where major road widening works are underway.
The Traffic Division boss says a plan is also in place to manage the movement of traffic in the vicinity of Merl Grove, Queens and Immaculate high schools.
And Manager of Communication and Customer Services at the National Works Agency, NWA, Stephen Shaw, says steps have been taken to reduce delays being experienced by commuters traveling between Portmore, St. Catherine and Kingston and St. Andrew.
Mr. Shaw expanded on the plan that he says is designed to achieve a relatively smooth flow of traffic between Portmore and Kingston and St. Andrew.
