The sewerage construction taking place in Parade and Barrack Streets, Kingston has caused a road closure in the vicinity of St Joseph Mercy Hospital. The authorities have placed barricades at the approaches to the Mercy Hospital forcing emergency cases to seek alternative attention.
According to a citizen, at one point in Duke Street there is a policeman manning the barricade. He reportedly told persons to exit their vehicles if they wished to reach the hospital.
An official at the Mercy Hospital said that an ambulance should be allowed to bypass the barricade if necessary at the point of entry. Patients in vehicles if unable to walk to the hospital, should be allowed through the barricade, the official added.
There was no comment from the Police Public Relations officer. He was not available. However, another police source said that persons would not be allowed to bypass the barricade because it serves a purpose to deter vehicles from entering the street whether it be an emergency or not.
