Update: Vending suspended at Cross Crossing from Thursday midnight

Vending at Cross Crossing will be suspended from midnight on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the San Fernando City Corporation announced that vending would be suspended on midnight on Friday.

However, in an updated statement on Thursday, the Corporation said this will now take place from midnight.

This is one of the measures taken by the San Fernando City Corporation in its COVID-19 fight.

The Corporation said the new measures were decided upon at a Council meeting on Wednesday.

It stated that 20 additional Municipal police officers have been reassigned to San Fernando to reinforce measures taken by the Council, such as, the managing of the Chaguanas, Port of Spain and Curepe taxis, who are restricted from plying their trade on Upper High Street at certain hours.

Officers will also assist with the management of the Central, Marabella and Fish Markets for the purpose of crowd management.

The Corporation added that there will be no vending of clothing and haberdashery at markets during this period.

It said social distancing will be practiced at all markets via codes.

Wreckers have been reduced from three to two, which it said will facilitate the margin of leniency in the wrecking of the vehicles.
