The public is advised that the beaches from the entrance to St Lawrence Gap, to the entrance of the Richard Haynes Boardwalk, at Accra Beach, Christ Church, will remain closed until 6p.m. on Monday, October 1.
A release from the Barbados Government Information Service (BGIS) said it was necessary to the extend the closure due to the severity of the inclement weather associated with the passage of Tropical Storm Kirk.
“This is necessary to facilitate the continued opening of the sluice gate at Worthing, on account of the heavy rainfall, to equalise the water levels in the Graeme Hall Swamp.
“The closure of the beaches may be extended if conditions necessitate it,” the release stated.
