Partial Bridge Collapse at Darkwood

533

Thursday 11th October, 2018-The Works Department is advising drivers to be cautious when using the Darkwood area, after a section of the bridge collapsed.

Earlier today (Thursday), a team conducted an assessment to examine the overall condition of the bridge, and to determine what led to the deterioration, though it is believed to be as a result of high seas and rough waves.

The team comprised of Minister of Works Hon. Lennox Weston, Parliamentary Representative for the area Hon. Samantha Marshall, Permanent Secretary Clarence Pilgrim,  Director of Works Lucine Handley,  and Deputy Director of Works Aldin Crump among others.

Permanent Secretary Clarence Pilgrim says the Ministry will put measures in place to avoid accidents, while they work on effecting repairs.
