Tobago has been virtually shut down because of the current sea bridge crisis facing the island.
Issues affecting the sea bridge have been affecting travellers and the business community for some time.
The business community in Tobago has been clamoring for some ease to the situation.
President of the Truckers and Traders Association Horace Amede says that the situation now warrants Government intervention.
He said that it has now gotten to the point where police officers are to be placed on the vessels.
Meanwhile, Deputy Secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly, Joel Jack is however dismissing claims that there is any crisis in Tobago.
In an interview with News Power Now, Joel Jack said while there were claims that there was a food shortage on the island as a result of the interruptions on the sea bridge, checks with major supermarkets in Tobago, proved otherwise.
Mr. Jack said the Barge is being utilized and it assured it is a temporary measure, with a permanent solution forthcoming.
