ONE OF THE parties that will be directly affected by the demolition of the old entrance at the Bridgetown Port Inc. and construction of the new one is on board with the project.

Leader of one of the taxi associations, Anthony Eastmond (below), described the $1.1 million project as “timely” and needed. taxi-anthony-eastmond-and-charles-layne

Yesterday at the start of the demolition, senior port official Karl Branch said the entire process was the end of an era and the beginning of a new one.

He admitted that fewer taxis would be allowed in the port during that time but he said they had consulted with the operators ahead of time. (TG)
