JPS, fix the broken pole, Windward Road residents plea
KINGSTON, Jamaica - Residents along Windward Road today renewed pleas for the Jamaica Public Service (JPS) to fix a broken utility pole in the area
The residents said that while they are aware the JPS continues work to remove downed utility poles across the island, they feel the broken pole is in need of urgent attention.
They fear the wires may be energised, posing serious threat to passersby.
"The pole is hanging over the roadway and we fear it may fall at any time and damage a member of the public," resident Foster Dawkins told the Observer this morning.
The JPS said that it has made significant headway restoring power to over 60 per cent of its customers, following damage done by Hurricane Sandy.
