MORE than 6,000 residents in the Taylor Land community of St Andrew East Rural now have easier access to their homes, following the opening of a bridge in the area on Monday.

Speaking at the official opening, Member of Parliament for the area Juliet Holness said the new infrastructure has brought relief for users of the roadway as, previously, they had to travel for longer periods to enter the community.

Holness noted that without the bridge it is very hard to secure the community, as the added distance meant that the police could not respond in a timely manner to situations.

The Member of Parliament also lauded the community members for their co-operation during the construction, and for ensuring that there was no undue delay or additional cost.

Meanwhile, director of technical services at National Works Agency (NWA), Roger Smith, told the gathering that the new bridge replaced the previous one that had served the area for more than 45 years, and that the work was done to the agency’s satisfaction.

He said the bridge was the first of several that the NWA bought from China recently, and that they are being deployed at “designated sites” across the island, to be installed at a cost of $100 million.

Bridges will also be erected at Chesterfield and Barracks in St Mary, and Southwood in Clarendon.

Meanwhile, councillor for the Dallas Division Celia James said she is overjoyed, as the Member of Parliament did intensive lobbying to get the bridge erected.

“I am so happy for the people in Taylor Land,” the councillor said.

Several of the residents told JIS News that they welcomed the bridge, noting that it will lessen their travel time and add to security in the area.
