ST MARY, Jamaica — The police are advising motorists that there is no access to Gayle from the Lampkin Hill Bridge in St Mary as it has been badly damaged due to the constant rains, which have rendered it impassable.

The communities of Decoy, Mile Gully, Dresike, Hunts Town and Amiel Town are therefore inaccessible to vehicular traffic via that route, the police have reported.

Motorists are being advised to use alternate routes, which include Jacks River and Free Hill, while those travelling to Port Maria from Gayle will have to use the Retreat or Labrynth main road.

Updates will follow.
