The National Road Safety Council, NRSC, is calling on the government to immediately address the long standing problem of the Bog Walk Gorge in St. Catherine.

On Saturday, six people plunged to their death after the Suzuki Vitara in which they were travelling overturned on the Flat bridge and went into the Rio Cobre river.

Scores of people have lost their lives on the ill-fated bridge since its existence.

Executive Director of the NRSC, Paula Fletcher says the time has come for rails to be placed on either side of the bridge.
