New traffic plan for
Sando next week
Several taxi stands will be relo-
cated and the wreckingofillegally
parked vehicles will return as the
San Fernando City Corporation
rolls out a new traffic manage-
ment plan next Tuesday.
At a statutory meeting, San Fer-
nando mayor, Junia Regrello, said
the plan sought to address major
complaints about traffic congestion
in the heart of the city.
"If you try to pass Library Corner
on any given day, morning, evening or
peak traffic,you would be amazed buy
what happens there. We are looking
for a solution to that. We have had
several discussions with stakehold-
er beginning with the taxi drivers on
how to deal with that situation. We
have met with Traffic Management
Branch, the Police Service and taxi
driver associations from the various
stands," Regrello said.
He said the changes would include
the traffic flow on Upper Mucurapo
Street changing from North to South,
the one-way section of Lord Street
turning from East to West and Library
Street changing from West to East.
The Marabella, La Romaine, Fyza-
bad and Princes Town taxi stands will
be moved lower down on Mucurapo
Street while the Cocoyea/Ste Made-
leine and Diamond/Esperance Taxi
stands will be pushed further up Cof-
fee Street. Regrello said he would also
instruct the corporation to open the
gates at Paradise Cemetery.
Regrello said while PH taxi drivers
provided a public service, they often
blocked traffic while searching for
passengers, thus there would be an
increased presence of police and traf-
fic wardens at the taxi stands. He said
some businesses would have to make
better arrangements for offloading
goods as they often blocked traffic
The plan was met with mixed re-
actions by taxi drivers. Princes Town
taxi drivers were in favour of the move
as it was easier for them to leave the
city. The Marabella taxi drivers were
not in total harmony with the plan
which they said would create addi-
tional driving for them.
"This sound like a better plan than
we have now. We can leave the city
easier, so I welcome this," Cid Thom-
as, a Princes Town driver said.
However, former president of the
Princes Town/San Fernando Taxi
Drivers' Association, Azard Ali, ex-
pressed concern about the space for
taxi stands on lower Mucurapo Street
which already accommodated the
St John's, Broadway and Woodland
hubs. Some La Romain taxi drivers
said they would give the plan a try,
but if it did not work, they hoped
the corporation would revert to the
old system. Regrello assured the ar-
rangement would be reviewed after
several weeks and if they needed to
tweak it they would.
No arrest in porn photos probe---Dillon
No one has yet been arrested
following the June 2016 investiga-
tions into reports that pornograph-
ic pictures of minors were being
posted on a local Web site,National
Security Minister Edmund Dillon
confirmed on Thursday.
Dillon gave the reply in the Senate,
regarding a question from Independ-
ent Senator Paul Richards, about the
Dillon said the Police Service re-
ceived a report in June 2016 of the
pornographic pictures being posted. He
said the Fraud Squad and Cyber-Crime
unit haD been investigating it, but no-
one has been been arrested to date.
On other queries about T&T's 97th
place ranking in the Global Peace In-
dex Report (2017) Dillon quoted the
report's explaination for this, "In T&T's
case this was 'on account of a rise in
military expenditure as a percentage
of GDP and weapons imports'
" (So) we have to monitor our ex-
penditure," Dillon added.
Dillon said T&T's GPI ratings have
always fluctuated between 84 and 98.
It was also 97--- the current ranking---
in 2015. Ranking stood at 79 in 2011.
That year, there was a state of emer-
gency in T&T.
