STATEMENT – A failed culvert along the Castries-Gros Islet Roadway opposite the JQ Rodney Bay Mall has resulted in the collapse of the road carriage.
The Ministry of Infrastructure, Port and Services and Transport in consultation with traffic authorities are compelled with immediate effect, to allow only north bound traffic to traverse the section of the road near the JQ Rodney Bay Mall. All south bound traffic with the exception of minibuses and emergency vehicles are advised to use alternative roads, such as Beausejour and Bonne Terre etc.
The MIPST appeals for the patience and cooperation of all motorists and pedestrians as the MIPST seeks to deal with this unfortunate situation, and wishes to reassure the motoring public that all is being done to resolve this problem within the shortest possible time frame.
The MIPST regrets any inconvience caused.
Allison Jean (Mrs.)
