Road works update
The Ministry of Transport and Works has completed gabion work at Dark Hole in St. Joseph and preparations are now being made for the reinstatement of the road which collapsed during the passage of Tropical Storm Tomas.
Officials have also noted that while Jack-in-the-Box Road has been paved and is now reopened from the direction of Ashford through to Walkes Spring, a utility pole is still to be removed from the centre of the road and motorists are therefore urged to exercise extreme caution. The section of that road from the direction of Proute is still closed and road works are continuing.
Meanwhile, personnel from the Six Roads, St. Philip depot and constructing slipper drains and kerbs at Gaskin Road, while at Garrett Road a culvert is being built.
Prince Road, St. Michael depot personnel are undertaking roadside work at Golf Club Road to improve drainage in the area. A crew is also repairing footpaths on Wildey Road while another team is fixing kerbs on Norham Road, off Carrington Village.
Work is continuing on road repairs at the Ivy while a retaining wall is being constructed in Welches, and footpaths and manholes are being repaired on Roebuck Street — all by crews from the Richmond Depot.
