“In that regard those travelling along South Shore road over the weekend are encouraged to exercise patience while these works are underway.

“As a reminder, the Ministry announced a joint initiative by members of the Emergency Measures Organization [EMO]. The teams will be cutting back trees in various areas around the island to prevent damage in the event of a hurricane or severe storm.
