Residents of Duhaney Park in St Andrew are pleading with authorities to fix a collapsed section of a roadway in the community.

At least one vehicle suffered serious damage over the weekend after a wheel fell into the hole along Lamming Avenue in the area, a resident told Loop News.

"This happened on Saturday. A man was driving and the road collapsed under it and his car wheel went right down," the woman said, adding that "No one from the relevant authorities have come to address this matter."

She continued: "This is the general condition of Lamming Avenue. We are crying for HELP!"

It is the latest in a string of reports collapsed roadways in recent weeks, which coincides with consistent rainfall over the period.
