Lee Sing: We cant plan for everybody
City mayor Louis Lee Sing said someone had called him yesterday and told him she had problems with the new plan since she had a physically challenged son and an 87-year-old parent who lived in St James and had to move around. Lee Sing added, “I listened and said to myelf, no government in no country or no company could plan for individuals as much as you’d like. “The question is how we can help in the way expected of us now, and I fear not.”
Lee Sing said he’d been told a bus service might be set up to ply from St James to Westshore and turn around to go back to Port-of-Spain. He said the traffic plan presented a good opportunity for public transport agencies. He said some private entrepreneurs had called him and he told them to go full speed ahead on the idea. When asked about the plan disadvantaging taxi drivers and passengers, Lee Sing said:
“We consulted taxi drivers and association months ago, and nobody came up with a route. They had to come up with a route to access their clients. “You can’t plan with every person in mind, you have to plan for the whole. “So I’m appealing to people to let this week pass and let the plan settle down.”
