A stretch of East End road blocked off for months has sparked complaints from a nearby resident.

Barbara Atwood said that a pile of rocks had sat in the turn-off from Lower Gates Road to St David’s Road since October, at least.

She asked: “What the heck is it for?

“What is the point of blocking that road off?

“It was a perfectly good, useable road.”

Photographs taken at the junction yesterday showed one end of the turn-off on to St David’s Road blocked by rocks.

The other end from Lower Gates Road was fenced off with a metal barricade.

Ms Atwood said that a fence had been set up in the same spot last summer before the rocks had appeared.

She added it appeared the measures were taken to stop vehicles using the connection, but that she did not know where the materials had come from or who had positioned them in the roadway.

Ms Atwood said that she had not raised the problem with any government department.

Lieutenant-Colonel David Burch, the Minister of Public Works, and Tinée Furbert, the MP for St George’s South, did not respond to requests for comment.
