Out-of-Town traffic ease
MAJOR INCENTIVES to set up business outside of crowded Bridgetown and getting large residential developments to include more of the things people need are among the suggestions thrown up by former Chief Town Planner Leonard St Hill for easing Barbados’ traffic congestion.
St Hill also said that developing Nestfield, St Lucy; Belleplaine, St Andrew; Welchman Hall, St Thomas; Six X Roads, St Philip; Holetown, St James; and Speightstown, St Peter, would help reduce the traffic bottlenecks seen daily in areas such as Wildey or Warrens, St Michael.
He made his comments yesterday while delivering the weekly lunchtime lecture at the Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) headquarters in Belleville, St Michael.
He complained about lands being subdivided for major residential projects but with the developers failing to make provision for shops, schools “and other urban facilities which are required in those urban developments”.
