Traffic affecting you? JSC wants to know

The Joint Select Committee on Land and Physical Infrastructure of the Parliament of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago wants you to have your say on traffic congestion across the country as it seeks to reduce delays in travel on the nation’s roadways.

This, as the Committee launched an inquiry into the effectiveness of measures in place to reduce traffic congestion on the nation’s roadways.

The Committee is seeking comment from the public with the help of a questionnaire, which can be accessed here:  

The Committee has set out to: Be apprised of the measures in place to reduce traffic congestion and to determine whether these measures are effective;

Examine the traffic patterns in Trinidad and Tobago and the respective major contributors to congestion;

Determine the economic and social costs of traffic congestion; and

To determine the challenges associated with reducing traffic congestion. 

The Committee says responses received thus far have been insightful, with traffic lights, the efficiency of the public transportation and traffic wardens being some of the major issues identified.
