Vital repair work has started on the Wharf Road in The City.Today workmen were busy drilling away sections of the main roadway that was damaged during last month’s passage of Tropical Storm Tomas and has recently been closed off to vehicular traffic.Nash Lovell, the chief technical officer in the Ministry of Transport and works acknowledged that damage was “just as bad” as anticipated.He also said officials were sticking to the original timetable for completion of the remedial work.“We can confirm that there is an undermining of the wall under the road. There is other work to be done but in three to four weeks we expect repairs of the [road] surface to be carried out and completed as was previously announced,” said Lovell, noting that an official statement would be issued on Monday.
