The parliament is told by Transport Minister, Stephen Cadiz, that at this time, it is not economically viable to establish a Water Taxi Service in La Brea and Point Fortin.
Questioned on the promised start of the service in these communities by La Brea MP , Fitzgerald Jeffrey and Point Fortin MP, Paula Gopee Scoon, Minister Cadiz said a review of the proposed project has revealed that it would be extremely costly in light of extensive dredging that will need to be carried out.
Mr. Cadiz noted that the construction of the Point Fortin Highway as well as improved Public Transportation are factors, which he believed will help the free movement of citizens in an efficient way.
