The National Works Agency (NWA) is reporting that the main road from Wakefield to Hardwar Gap at Silver Hill, Portland has been blocked due to a landslide.

So too is 12 Miles along the Irish Town Road in St Andrew.

That corridor was blocked yesterday by a similar landslide.

The roadway was subsequently cleared.

A new landslide has again rendered the roadway impassable.

The NWA says it is mobilising equipment to address both situations.
