Following heavy rains over the weekend along with experiencing tremors from a 5.7 magnitude earthquake, a decision has been taken to close the bridge at Fitz Hughes due to structural damage.

The Ministry of Transport, works, Urban Development and Local Government in a press release says the Bridge at Fitz Hughes opposite the Vinlec power station would be closed until further notice.

The release stated that the bridge would be closed to vehicular traffic with immediate effect until further notice.

Efforts are currently being made to support the existing bridge in order to allow reduced traffic until a viable bypass is established.
