The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising road users that effective immediately, the Paradise Bridge, which is located along the Ferris Cross to Dunbar’s River roadway in Westmoreland is closed to vehicular traffic.
Community Relations Officer at the NWA’s Western Region, Janel Ricketts, says that the closure is necessary as the bridge has been compromised and is deemed unsafe for vehicles to traverse. Ms Ricketts says a damage assessment is being done, following which steps will be taken to repair the structure.
Ms Ricketts says that motorists travelling from Ferris Cross to the direction of Savanna La Mar, should use the alternative route through Strathbogie, and Piper’s Corner.
Motorists are being advised to obey the posted warning signs.
