Broken hoist costing thousands


Share post:

A BROKEN HOIST at the Ministry of Transport and Works (MTW) is costing Government and businesses in the transport industry thousands of dollars daily.

Reports reaching the WEEKEND NATION say the hoist, which is used in the inspection process for large vehicles, has been out of operation for over a month.

As a result, owners and operators of BT, B and BM licensed buses, as well as buses operated by the state-run Transport Board have been unable to get their vehicles inspected or registered.

A source told the WEEKEND NATION that staff at the MTW’s Pine, St Michael headquarters had realised the machinery was in dire need of repairs for the past three years and had brought it to management’s attention. (RB)
