The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising that flood rains in the parish of St. Ann between January 9 and 11, 2010 have caused major damage to the Lime Hall main road. A section of the road embankment, between Mile Posts 43 and 45 in an area know as Clamstead, has broken away, reducing this section of the corridor to a single lane.
The Lime Hall main road provides access to the main town of St. Ann’s Bay and also serves as an alternative route for trucks transporting goods or heavy equipment to the north coast. Operators of large vehicles are being advised to use the route located between Golden Grove and Drax Hall via Chalky Hill and Steer Town.
The NWA has dispatched personnel from its Technical Services Department to the location of the breakaway in order to access the damage and determine the repairs required.
Motorists and pedestrians who use this roadway are advised to proceed with caution and obey posted warning signs.
