The National Works Agency (NWA) says it is dealing with the complaints of residents of Pennants, Clarendon about the discomfort being caused by the construction of a bridge in their community.

Several persons whose land has been disturbed by the work being done by China Harbour Engineering Company say they are not satisfied with the way the remedial work is being done.

The NWA Communications Manager Stephen Shaw has started compensating residents for their land and crops that were lost.

Shaw says person who have been displaced will be dealt with before the work is finished.

The bridge is slated to be completed in April next year.

The construction of the bridge is a part of the government's plan to improve the road network between May Pen, Clarendon in the south and Runaway Bay, St Ann in the north.
