Safety a big concern
People in a number of districts across St Andrew want urgent action taken to repair several bridges in that rural parish.
From Trio Path to the East Coast, the plea is the same for the Ministry of Transport, Works and Maintenance to deal with the problem before it is too late.
“I would not advise anyone to be on that bridge when one of those heavy vehicles passes,” said a Cane Garden resident known as “Puffy”, who added that the bridge there was “very dangerous”.
Puffy, and another man known as “Slims”, said the bridge had been weakened by water damage and it “trembled” when heavy vehicles passed over it. They said it was only a matter of time before it went from bad to worse. (CA)
