Holness was speaking on Thursday at the commissioning of a $33-million, 110-ft-long bridge spanning the Wag Water River and which links Airy Castle, Bowden Hill, and Stony Hill in the St Andrew West Rural constituency represented by Juliet Cuthbert-Flynn.
The truth is that in any other country, we would not be waiting until the bridge collapses because I gather this bridge is almost 70 years old,” Holness said.
But after a year of much displeasure, Bowden Hill residents can now breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the bridge is once again open to them.
So I am happy that we now have a new, strong bridge to take us across the river,” Brown-Nicely said.
I think the prime minister did well, and we now have a strong bridge to take me over this beast of a river when it is flooded,” the elderly man said.
