Works Ministry: Photo of crumbling pillar is 'fake news'

The Ministry of Works and Transport (MOWT) has corrected a photo circulating on social media showing a fractured concrete highway support pillar.

In a statement, the Ministry said the photo was not taken in Trinidad and Tobago and that citizens have no need to worry.

The image showing a fractured concrete pillar which was alleged to be part of the Grand Bazaar interchange overpass was shared via social media on Tuesday.

However, this was shown to be fake.
