LINSTEAD: Taxi operators protest over bad road; several stranded

Taxi drivers who operate between Treadways and Linstead in St Catherine North West protested this morning, October 22, over the deplorable condition of the roadway leading to Treadways district.

They blocked various sections of the roadway, resulting in several commuters – including students and teachers – being prevented from travelling.

Attendance is particularly affected at McGrath High School, which is located in Treadways.

The taxi operators said the bad road is eroding their earnings, considering that they have to spend too often on auto parts.

They also claimed that they have been waiting too long for a positive response from their political representatives – Councillor Sydney Rose and Member of Parliament Robert Pickersgill.
