Road plan

The Ministry of Transport and Works is moving to address some of the pedestrian problems on highway 2A at Westmoreland, St James.

Deputy Chief Technical Officer Phillip Tudor led a team of technocrats to get a first-hand  view of the challenges pedestrians encounter crossing the highway intersection.

 “We will take a look at the junction to see what they can do in the interim. We are looking at either for the long term, [traffic] lights or a roundabout . . .,”  but in the short-term road markings to hopefully alleviate some of the problems at the junction,” Tudor said.

A number of road fatalities have been recorded at Westmoreland, the most recent  being last Wednesday. Mary Downes, 61, died after a collision between two trucks caused one of them to veer to the side, fatally striking her. (LK)
