The National Works Agency (NWA) says it will be closely monitoring the traffic changes implemented in Half Way Tree, St. Andrew during this week.

The changes were introduced yesterday at the Constant Spring Road/South Odeon Avenue and Constant Spring Road/Hope Road intersections.
The NWA said the changes will result in an exclusive pedestrian signal phase at these intersections.
The traffic signal timing at both intersections will be adjusted to accommodate increased walk time for pedestrians.
Audible pedestrian signals will also be installed at the pedestrian crossing at each intersection to assist the visually impaired.
Though the changes were introduced yesterday, the system will be put to the true test this morning as motorists and pedestrians head to school and work.
Communications and customer services manager at the NWA, Stephen Shaw, said a team from the agency will be out today to assess the impact of the changes.
He said these changes will be monitored for six months to determine their effectiveness.
