The National Council on Public Transportation (NCOPT) has expressed concern over a sign prohibiting bus access to a road near Sunbilt Limited at Bois D’Orange, Gros Islet.
Gros Islet drivers have complained that the sign is creating congestion.
NCOPT President, Godfrey Ferdinand told St Lucia Times that the authorities did not consult his organisation on the matter.
He also said he has not seen any survey that indicates that the sign is needed.
“Where that sign is put, persons living in that area will be denied public transport,” Ferdinand asserted.
He was of the opinion that instead of erecting the sign, it would have been advantageous for the authorities to implement an additional route, or include the area into an existing route.
The NCOPT President told St Lucia Times that he is very concerned that signs are being put up without consultation.
He said there needs to be more respect for the different sectors.
