Members of the Clarke family, of Rock Gap, Spooners Hill, St Michael, are tiptoeing to and from their homes because of this huge well that has collapsed, causing a significant portion of the road around it to break away.
The well was being built by the Drainage Unit to capture water when it rains to prevent flooding in the area. But the Clarkes said workmen refused to heed their warnings about the instability of the road, and the well eventually collapsed, undermining the area.
It’s been two months since the Drainage Unit assured them that the problem would be fixed by a private construction company.
They are fearful that the situation could cause the road to break away more and present a bigger danger not only to them, but other residents, especially with the rainy season due to start next week Friday.
