The National Works Agency (NWA) says that heavy rainfall is still causing flooding, breakaways and landslides in Trelawny, St Catherine and St Andrew.

Manager, Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw said parish teams have been mobilised to respond, where possible.

In Trelawny, road users are being asked to avoid the Wakefield to Bunkers Hill main road, as the corridor is flooded in the vicinity of the Unity Primary School.

The NWA said the road from Falmouth to Springvale, near Granville, is also flooded and should be avoided by operators of small vehicles.

Meanwhile, a breakaway that recently occurred along the Wire Fence to Albert Town main road, in the vicinity of the Stettin Health Centre, has worsened.

Motorists are being urged to exercise extreme caution when using this corridor.

In St Catherine, a section of the St. John's Road has again been flooded. 

And the road from Stony Hill to Toms River in St Andrew is being impacted by a landslide in the Golden Spring area. The landslide has reduced the road to single lane traffic.

Mr Shaw said that as the rains continue across the island, persons should remain vigilant in using corridors especially where they are susceptible to flooding and landslides.
