North Coast Road still closed

The North Coast Road re­mains im­pass­able de­spite the ef­forts by the Min­istry of Works and Trans­port as well as the Min­istry of Agri­cul­ture's Hor­ti­cul­tur­al Di­vi­sion to clear fall­en trees block­ing a sec­tion of the road­way.

At around 3 this morn­ing heavy rains re­sult­ed in trees falling down the moun­tain­side on­to the road­way. Works Min­is­ter Ro­han Sinanan told Guardian Me­dia that ef­forts were made to clear at least one lane by 9.30 am.
