Employees of the Ministry of Public Works yesterday morning rushed to excavate a section of Sheriff Street, not far from the junction of David Street. That section had collapsed.The hole (foreground) which had been patched on Friday last, was yesterday already showing signs of damage. According to some of the ministry’s workers, who were on the scene, the section of roadway had been repaired a number of times. “The last time we patched that hole was about two months ago,” said one of the workers.The workers explained that there was another hole across the road from the one that they had excavated and that that one was patched last Friday last in the wake of the heavy downpour on Thursday.The constant repair of the same section of road caused the workers to think that there might have been a problem with the road itself, probably with the foundations.“Since we keep on repairing it and it kept becoming damaged,” said one of the workers, “we decided to dig it, to see what the problem is. When we excavated it, we find this rotten culvert.”Reports concerning the widening hole had been reported since Sunday night,Cheap Air Max 2018 Shoes

As fate would have it, the hold widened and the road collapsed during the daylight hours when it would have been clearly visible to traffic.While the workers of the Ministry of Public Works excavated the road, they said that they were not responsible for effecting the necessary repairs.There was a significant traffic build-up Before they began to excavate that portion of Sheriff Street, at just about 9:30 hours,nfl jerseys cheap
