The days of public service vehicles (PSVs) jostling for space along the busy Speightstown By-Pass Road are coming to an end.

Come September 1, both the minibuses and route taxis plying those northern routes will be accommodated inside the Speightstown Terminal with Transport Board buses.

This was revealed by Ian Estwick, chairman of the Transport Authority, as he responded to an investigative report in yesterday’s Daily Nation highlighting daily chaos in Speightstown with PSVs blocking the streets, overloading with schoolchildren, being off-route and speeding. (MB)
