Harbour View Bridge collapses leaving residents stranded
Scores of persons are now stranded on either side of the Harbour View Bridge in Eastern St Andrew, Jamaica.
A major portion of the bridge collapsed last night, during the passage of Tropical Storm Gustav, leaving persons from Bull Bay and St Thomas unable to get to the corporate area.
Member of Parliament for Western St. Thomas James Robertson who is among persons who are unable to get into St Thomas told the Gleaner power 106 News that it could take weeks for a temporary structure to be put in place.
The National Works Agency, NWA says work on the Harbour View Bridge in East Kingston is to begin in another 24 to 48 hours.
