Watch as a man explains the challenges now being experienced by persons who use the Cabo Star to transfer their vehicles between Trinidad and Tobago.
As the man explains, the Cabo Star docked in Port-of-Spain from Tobago, and 45 minutes later, vehicles could not leave the vessel.
He explains that drivers have to fly from Crown Point, Tobago to Piarco, Trinidad, and no vehicle can disembark until the drivers arrive.
President of the Inter-Island Truckers Association Horace Amede says his motion calling for a two day shutdown of Tobago is meant to send a message to the powers that be that “this thing cannot continue.”
Referring to months of disruption on the seabridge, he said: “People are hurting and businesses are closing down.”
The shutdown, details of which are yet to be finalised, is getting support from the Minority Council of the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) and the Public Services Association, both led by Watson Duke.
