Minority Leader of the Tobago House of Assembly, Watson Duke is today calling on the Tobago House of Assembly to be placed in charge of the Air and Sea Bridge in light of recent and ongoing problems plaguing the Port Authority of Trinidad and Tobago.
In the past couple weeks; there have been multiple sailing cancellations for passengers who would have booked for sailing aboard the T&T Spirit fast ferry and the Trinidad Express Vessel. The Port Authority has said, the cancellations have been owed to mechanical issues faced due to the fact that the vessels require dry dock periods for repair work to be done.
Speaking on the Power Breakfast Morning Show today, Watson Duke said the THA must be fully empowered.
Mr. Duke said the THA, according to the 5th schedule, should be responsible for these two very important methods of travel between the islands.
