Trinidad and Tobago’s seabridge issues will soon be solved with the acquisition of a new passenger ferry. The announcement was made by Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley during his address to the nation on the weekend. Dr. Rowley said the vessel was located by an international broker, contracted by NIDCO.
The boat is currently docked in Asia and according to Dr. Rowley should be in Trinidad and Tobago within weeks.
The Seabridge has been fraught with issues, with business owners in Tobago suffering millions of dollars in losses as a direct result. TheTobago Chamber of Commerce has put the figure at $500 million dollars, while Diana Hadad, Chairman of the Inter Island Transportation Committee says the sea bridge debacle has left the Tobago economy crippled.
