  1. As usual wait too late to tackle a soar then it gets infected and poison the body, over one year since this bridge damage and now it’s at its final stage before amputations u talking about cautions! I pray nothing major happen there before actual work begin..

  2. Alciana left ABS ? Oh ok. Hopefully she does a better job than Shawn Thomas. It takes that many people to “assess” damage to a bridge in 2018?

  3. Firstly, the road was poorly constructed and badly maintained over the years. Public Works have good engineers but too much Bureaucracy and political interference are hindering them to perform at a high standard. I hope that they get it right this time and soon before someone get hurt.

  4. “We have done a preliminary assessment and at this stage we are presently putting together a plan of action which will be unveiled in the next few days, until then we intend to put signage to caution drivers to be cautious when going around that particular side of the bridge.” Or; “They had a look and a chat. Why are they there? Get some engineers on the job please.
