The Highway and Traffic Division of the Jamaica Constabulary Force says it is facing a challenge deploying personnel during peak hours to control traffic flow in Mona and Barbican in St Andrew.
Due to road improvement works taking place in both areas, motorists have encountered significant delays.
Superintendent Calvin Allen, head of the Highway and Traffic Division, told RJR News that the police are assigned to Mona in the mornings.
He said the Division is not able to deploy personnel to that location and Barbican in the evenings.
“The evening period doesn’t necessarily get attention as we’d want to, based on some other areas of demand,” he told RJR News , explaining that many other major intersections in the Corporate Area demand similar police deployment in the late afternoon/early evening.
He expressed optimism however that the work in Barbican will soon be so far advanced that the flow of traffic will be considerably improved.
