UPDATE: Gorge reopened but be careful, police caution
KINGSTON, Jamaica - Police personnel from the Mobile Reserve and the St. Catherine North Police Division using heavy duty equipment and working in conjunction with the NSWMA and the St. Catherine Parish Council were able to clear large sections of the Bog Walk Gorge of boulders and other debris this morning.
As a result, the gorge is now open to vehicular traffic.
However, Commanding Officer for the St Catherine North Division SSP Anthony Castelle is warning users of the gorge to proceed with extreme caution.
"Motorists can now use the Bog Walk Gorge but they must do so with extreme care. Persons using the gorge must follow the instructions of the police and desist from speeding or improper overtaking. The Police will continue to work with the other government agencies to bring this vital roadway to normal condition,” SSP Castelle said.
