The police are advising members of the public that the Bog Walk Gorge in St. Catherine is currently impassable.

Motorists are being asked to use alternative routes as a trailer has overturned, blocking vehicular traffic from entering or exiting the bridge.

There are no reports of anyone receiving any life-threatening injuries.

 

Sources close to the area say that over the last two weeks there have been four separate cases where a truck reportedly overturned blocking the Bog Walk Gorge.

One of the cases was reported on October 23 when motorists heading through the area were forced to turn around after a truck overturned in the vicinity of Kent Village.

Another case was reported on October 17.

There were however no reports of anyone receiving life-threatening injuries in the incidents that forced the National Works Agency and the police to issue several advisories.
