The clean-up of the Cheapside Terminal in St Michael is underway, says director of the Transport Authority Ruth Holder.

She gave that update on Thursday morning following complaints from drivers and the Alliance Owners of Public Transport (AOPT).

“It’s in an untidy state, similar to what the country is going through right now. This is not anything that is peculiar to Cheapside but we are making our best efforts to get it correct and rectified,” Holder said.

Holder was speaking after AOPT Chairman Roy Raphael and director of complaints Craig Banfield also visited the terminal. They said since the start of the week drivers and commuters had complained about the buildup of volcanic ash which made a mess, especially when the vehicles exited the terminal.

They were disappointed no attempts were made to clean it earlier.

Barbados is being affected by ash from explosive eruptions of the La Soufriere Volcano in St Vincent.

The volcano began erupting explosively last Friday. A national clean-up campaign was launched on Monday to avoid build-up of the ash. (TG)
