The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising motorists to exercise extreme caution on the roadway between Port Antonio and Orange Bay in Portland. This, as aggregate that have fallen off trucks, in addition to the roadways being wet from rainfall, create hazardous driving conditions. Manager of Communications and Customer Services at the National Works Agency, Stephen Shaw says that the section of roadway is particularly dangerous as it has numerous corners. He is also reminding operators of large vehicles, transporting aggregate material, that loads should be tied down or secured and that the trucks should not be overweight. Mr. Shaw further stated that overladen trucks damage the roadway and pose a risk to the lives of persons who uses the road.
