KINGSTON, Jamaica — The National Works Agency (NWA) says it has notified the relevant authorities, including the police, of illegal sand mining taking place in the Kintyre area of St Andrew.

The agency said the activity will compromise the integrity of the bridge, which was built a few years ago to facilitate crossing of the Hope River.

The bridge, which was opened in 2013, is the most central route used by residents of communities such as Kintyre, Tavern, Hope Flats, Cosmo Mews, Clarke Street, St Joseph's Road, Bedward Pastures and surrounding areas.
