Mixed views on PSV’s diversion
THE TEMPORARY redirection of public service vehicles’ (PSVs) in and out of the River Terminal has led to mixed fortunes for some vendors.
Authorities are constructing speed tables leading into and out of the bus stand that services the south of the island. While this is being done in order to control the speed at which the PSVs travel along Nursery Drive, some temporary traffic changes have been implemented.
In the meantime vegetable vendor Abiola Harrison attributed an increase in sales to the presence of the police in the stand.
“I see a slight increase in business. If the police are here, the people usually have to come in, [the van stand] but if no police here, everybody stop out there, so business gets slow,” she said.
