NWA working to reopen collapsed section of North Coast Highway
The National Works Agency (NWA) says it will be working today to reopen a section of the North Coast Highway near Hague, Trelawny, which was closed yesterday after it began collapsing.
The NWA's Communication Manager, Stephen Shaw, says the agency will be seeking to institute a temporary fix to ensure traffic flow.
Shaw says heavy rains in Trelawny on Monday caused debris to clog a major drain in Hague resulting in the partial collapse of the road.
He says a technical team carried out an inspection yesterday and found that the entire width of the road was undermined and likely to cave in under the weight of a passing vehicle.
