The police are currently directing a heavy build-up of traffic along a section of the road through the Bog Walk Gorge in St. Catherine. National Work Agency’s (NWA) Communication and Customer Services Manager, Stephen Shaw, says motorists are now experiencing delays when approaching Dam Head as a truck transporting feed has overturned at the location. While the roadway has not been closed, the NWA is advising motorists to use alternative routes where they still can.  The North/South Highway, the Sligoville roadway to Bog Walk and St. John’s Road through Barry are options. Meanwhile efforts to retrieve a piece of heavy equipment, which overturned in a pipe trench along Camp Road in the vicinity of the Jamaica Defence Force’s Up Park Camp earlier today, may result in delays for motorists later this evening. The operation to retrieve the equipment with a crane is expected to commence at 6 p.m. Motorists who normally use Camp Road to get to and from Downtown Kingston should use the alternative routes by way of Marescaux Road, Heroes Circle, North and East Streets.
