Traffic Chief recommends removal of minibus parks from central GT

first_imgAll minibus parks which are located in the centre of the capital city may soon be relocated to the Railway Embankment near Lamaha Street, east of Camp Street, Georgetown, if Government gives the ‘green light’ to this recommendation made by the Guyana Police Force’s Traffic Chief, Linden Isles.Traffic Chief, Superintendent, Linden IslesIsles, during a radio programme with the media on Friday, stated that his recommendation is contained in a paper that was already dispatched to the Ministry of the Presidency about traffic-related matters in the country.He explained that should the Administration concede to such a move, thethe Stabroek Market area, which currently caters for hundreds of minibuses plying various routes, would now become a central drop-off point for buses.When those minibuses offload their passengers, their drivers will be required to go the Lamaha Railway Embankment bus terminal.“The amount of buses that is registered in each of the parks is far more than the pace and the capacity than the park could hold so we will always have overcrowding at all the bus parks…I personally have done a paper and it was sent to the Office of the President, recommending that all the bus parks be removed from Central Georgetown,” Isles said.According to the Traffic Chief, if the minibus parks no longer exist around the Stabroek Market Square, there will be a reduction of crimes that are usually reported in that area.Also, it would ensure that persons who visit the market to shop or conduct other forms of businesses would be in a more comfortable public atmosphere to do so.“It’s a choke-point. Everything is just crammed into that area and we find we have robbery; we have this because persons are liming there, persons are there waiting so if that is removed from there, people will get to go and do their business and move around and go,” he had said.Under the proposed arrangement, passengers who are waiting at Stabroek Market area would be taken to the Lamaha Street Railway Embankment Bus Terminal by buses that are dropping off passengers there.last_img read more
