Reid Confident Traffic Management Strategies will Continue into School Year


Education Minister, Ruel Reid, is expressing confidence that traffic management strategies which were rolled out in the Corporate Area to accommodate the beginning of the school term yesterday, will remain in effect.

Several members of the Constabulary’s newly formed Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch, P-STEB, were deployed across the Corporate Area, yesterday to help with the smooth flow of traffic.

This, as there were fears that ongoing road works would contribute to traffic pile-ups.

Minister Reid says the traffic had no major impact on the reopening of schools across the Corporate Area.
