Transport Minister: Bad PBR move by PP

Monday, March 20 2017

WORKS and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan on Friday said an initiative started under the former Peopleís Partnership (PP) government to allow private vehicles carrying three or more persons to use the Priority Bus Route (PBR) within specific times, did more harm than good.

Responding to a question in the House of Representatives, Sinanan said this initiative started in 2012.

He listed the operating times along the PBR as 5.30 am to 8.30 am and 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm.

He said a report submitted by the Traffic Branch of the Police Service to the ministry showed that the initiative failed to achieve its objective from 2012 to 2015.

Sinanan listed reduced turnaround times for maxi taxis operating along the PBR, negative impacts on the Public Transport Service Corporationís bus schedule and increased risks of accidents as among the reasons why the initiative was stopped.

Later in the sitting, Public Utilities Minister Fitzgerald Hinds advised Couva South MP Rudranath Indarsingh that the formal commissioning of the lighting system at the Lower Balmain Recreation Ground should take place in June.
