LIGHTS at all community fields in TT are set to be turned on by the end of the week, according to Annabelle Brasnell, corporate communications manager at the TT Electricity Commission (TTEC).
The Prime Minister, in his covid19 media conference on Saturday, responding to a question about when lights will be turned on at the various recreation grounds in TT, said, “Now that we’re opening up for sports, I expect that the lights (would) be turned on.”
When contacted on Tuesday, Brasnell said, “We’re actually in the process of turning them on.”
Brasnell said TTEC began turning on the lights on Tuesday. She said, “Because of the number of grounds we have, it will take a few days to complete. We should be completed by the end of the week.”
Asked which areas will TTEC be starting from, Brasnell replied, “It depends on where we have crews working. That will be difficult to pin-point. They’re working at specific points around the country.
“It’s over 300 grounds we’re turning back on,” she added.
The news has come as a relief for sports and fitness enthusiasts who have been shut indoors for almost three months due to the covid19 restrictions.
