KINGSTON — Residents of Bronx Street in Linstead, St. Catherine, have made a desperate plea to the authorities to address the deplorable conditions of the roads in their community.
The residents say the terrible condition of the roads seriously impede travel to and from the community as transport operators stay away to avoid their vehicles being wrecked.
They say the situation is made worse whenever there is a downpour as water collected in the mega potholes poses a serious health hazard.
“For months we calling for help and it seems no one is listening to us and we are fed up with the whole situation,” one irate resident said yesterday.
“If the authorities continue to ignore our calls for help, we believe that the situation will lead to major problems in our area,” added a male resident who identified himself only as “Steve”. (Observer)
