President of the Transport Operators Development Sustainable Services, TODSS, Egeton Newman is calling on taxi operators in Western St. Thomas to return to work.

Taxi operators are protesting for a third day to highlight the bad condition of the road which leads from Cedar Valley to Morant Bay.

The continued protest has reportedly had an adverse impact of students who are sitting the CXC examinations.

Some schools in the parish have had to use their buses to transport students to do their examinations.

Mr. Newman says the operators should end their protests as the point has already been made regarding the bad conditions of the road.

He says the Ministry of Works has promised to begin road repairs today.
