Cash flow challenges root cause for non-functioning traffic lights

The Ministry of Works and Transport said despite the reported cash flow challenges which have affected non-functioning traffic lights in some parts of the country, the Ministry is currently utilising alternative means to have all the reported malfunctioning traffic signals repaired and fully operational in the shortest possible time.

In a release issued this evening the Ministry said the traffic signals, in the Southern Region have been repaired and are fully operational at this time.

These traffic signals include the Southern Connector Road/Union Hall Intersection, the Gulf City Intersection and the Paria Suites Intersection.

The Ministry said recent investigations have identified acts of sabotage and theft
at the Morvant Intersection by a member of the public as a contributing factor to the malfunctioning traffic signals.

A report has been forwarded to the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) for further investigation and appropriate action has already been taken.

The Ministry is urging members of the public to report any acts of sabotage to its Traffic Management Branch or the TTPS.
