The Alliance Owners of Public Transport (AOPT) will be writing Government seeking clarification over the erection of lane demarcations and signage in the Cheapside public service vehicle (PSV) terminal.

On Thursday morning, workers from the Ministry of Transport and Works were erecting signs with lane numbers and route lists, located to the top of the Bridgetown terminal. Some PSV operators were not pleased with the move.

“If this is where we work, should not the Government at least consult with us first before putting these up? Now look how they wasting space. Instead, they should open up the front (towards Cheapside) and allow us to leave that way like before, instead of having to drive up towards these signs, then come around (to Redman Drive),” one lamented.

AOPT director of complaints Craig Banfield, who spoke to some of the irate operators, said the alliance would be acting on their behalf. (CA)
