All is not well at the new Constitution River Terminal for some public service vehicle (PSV) operators.

On Tuesday, those who ply the 3D routes, travelling to the airport, pumped the brakes on work because they were unhappy with lane assignments in the just-opened facility.

Just after 11 a.m., they were asked to leave the terminal by police after they had decided to park their vehicles. They lined up along Nursery Drive and vented their frustrations.

A few other operators from other routes joined in solidarity after agreeing that the assignment of lanes was a serious issue that needed rectifying. (DB)
