The National Roads Authority (NRA) has announced that the new temporary road layout along the Linford Pierson Highway is now in effect as the lane widening project continues. This is a temporary road layout offering some much needed congestion relief whilst the new lanes and larger roundabout are being constructed.
The Linford Pierson Highway widening project commenced on Monday, March 14 and is expected to be fully completed by the end of the second quarter of 2023.
Once complete the project will see a widening of the road from two travel lanes to six travel lanes between Agnes Way Roundabout and the traffic signal at Bobby Thompson Way and Smith Road. The road will feature a raised grass median, along with enhanced drainage and street lighting.
Updates on the progress of the project will be provided in order to keep motorists informed of possible interruptions to the routine traffic flow within that area. Motorists are cautioned to take extra care when passing through the construction area.
The NRA appreciates the public’s understanding whilst staff members work to improve the road network for all.
