More gates for terminal

More gates could be added to the newly opened Constitution River Terminal to appease the concerns of public service vehicle (PSV) operators.

Minister of Transport Dr William Duguid spoke to this possibility yesterday after several operators on the 3D route pumped their brakes in protest of the lane assignments last Tuesday.

“We recognise that there are only ten gates and we’re looking at the possibility of seeing if we can add three more additional subsidiary gates to be able to ease the burden for everybody,” he told the DAILY NATION in a telephone interview.

“But we have to work with what we have. This is what we’ve come and found, but we have to work out a solution.”

The terminal had been built under the last Democratic Labour Party administration and first opened before the May 24 General Election. It was officially opened to the public on September 8.  (TG)
