VENDORS WHO PLY their trade in the River Bus Terminal have been given a reprieve.

Ordered to move by November 6 to make way for the construction of the Constitution River Terminal and its passenger concourse, the vendors now have until January 3 to pack up their belongings and dismantle their huts.

This was revealed by Minister of Transport Michael Lashley as he spoke at the ground-breaking of the new passenger concourse and a ceremony unveiling the Constitution River Terminal yesterday morning.

The vendors, who sell food, as well as those who offer barbering and hair dressing services, were up in arms recently at what they said was extremely short notice – ten days – to vacate the area. The River Terminal has been deemed a health hazard and condemned by health officials. (HLE)
