There were problems at the Port of Port of Spain this morning as passengers scheduled to take the 6:30 am sailing to Tobago were told that the sailing time had been cancelled due to mechanical failure.

The Port Authority later indicated that the T&T Express will be taken out of service from today to complete repairs to the Port Inner Main Engine (PIME). It says therefore that from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th May only the T&T Spirit will service the sea route.

News Power Now’s Aba Luke was among those trying to make it across this morning and explained that passengers were informed that in order to sail, they would have to remain in the line until the next sailing which is carded for 4pm today.
