Preparations underway for the function

Acting Police Superintendent, Richmond Valentine, has advised the general public of traffic arrangements made in the Lindo Park area of Goodwill, which will take effect on Monday, August 8, 2016 (today), from 3:00 pm.

This, he explained, is to facilitate the hosting of the ground-breaking ceremony of the new national hospital, which is to be held, at Lindo Park in Goodwill, at 4:00pm, today.

“Vehicles will only be allowed to travel in an easterly direction on Federation Drive, from its intersection on Rose Street, to St. Aroment. Vehicles travelling west along Federation Drive will be diverted onto Franklyn Lane or Grants Lane,” he said, in a statement aired this morning. “Vehicles exiting the Princess Margaret Hospital will be diverted east, along Federation Drive and onto Grants Lane, or west onto Charles Avenue.”

Valentine stated that local access will be permitted on Dupigny Lane, from its intersection with Rose Street and Federation Drive.

However, to allow for the free flow of traffic, he revealed that “vehicles will not be allowed to travel in a westerly direction along Federation Drive, from its intersection with Dupigny Lane and Rose Street.”

He added that parking for invited guests will be provided in the following areas:

“the southern side of Federation Drive, from the intersection of Rose Street to Dupigny Lane, the northern side of Federation Drive, from the intersection of Dupigny Lane to Franklin Lane; the western side of Rose Street, from its intersection with Murphy’s Lane to Federation Drive; and the Princess Margaret Hospital parking lot.”

Valentine apologized for any inconvenience caused, and asked for the full cooperation of the general public.
