There was no rest for some members of Works & Engineering on the weekend as they were busy on Perimeter Lane.

On Friday, a retaining wall on Palmetto Road collapsed following heavy rainfall that washed away much of the embankment.

The disaster saw one homeowner’s backyard turned into a pile of debris and the ensuing mudslide covered Perimeter Lane so much it looked like a dirt road rather than being paved.

There were four vehicles on hand from the Department of Works & Engineering on Saturday morning as they were still making Perimeter Lane more presentable for the motoring public.

Sunday saw a crew still on the job as they had now cleared most of the rubble from the backyard.

On Monday, the public should find alternative routes if they would normally use Palmetto Road. 

Originally 30 BELCO customers lost power as utility poles came down, but by Friday afternoon all homes had their electricity restored.
