KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) on Wednesday issued an advisory to the public, specifically those conducting business in the downtown Kingston area, that on Thursday, March 27, between 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, several road closures will be instituted.

Adijah ‘Vybz Kartel‘ Palmer and his co-accused are expected to be sentenced for murder tomorrow in the Supreme Court downtown Kingston .

King Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between Harbour Street and South Parade. The police say this means motorists travelling from South Parade, Tower Street, Harbour Street, and Barry Street will not be able to turn onto King Street. However, the police say merchants and business operators will be allowed limited access to this area.

Church Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between South Parade and Tower Street. No traffic will be allowed to turn onto Church Street from Barry Street, and only court officials and police vehicles will be able to access Church Street from the direction of South Parade or Tower Street, the advisory said.

The police also said that motorists travelling along Harbour Street intending to use King Street to access the Parade area, will instead go onto Orange Street or continue straight along Harbour Street, then left onto Duke Street, then left on to East Queen Street, to access the Parade area. Additionally, motorists travelling from South Parade intending to use King Street will instead travel onwards to East Parade, then onto East Queen Street, then onto East Street.

“Generally speaking, motorists travelling from west of the island intending to use King Street to access Parade will instead use Orange Street, while motorists travelling from the east of the island intending to access Parade will do so via East Queen Street,” the advisory said. “Other motorists going elsewhere will use East Street.”

The police also cautioned that the hours of closure may vary.
