Dear Editor,

The Transport Operators Development Sustainable Services (TODSS) is calling on the head of National Works Agency, who is the prime minister of Jamaica, to immediately take urgent steps to correct the continued gridlock on several roadways in and around Portia Simpson Miller Square.

The commuting public and business community was negatively affected for several hours yesterday, Monday, September 10, 2018, in several areas around Three Miles and this cannot be allowed to continue.

There has been no consultation with the over 3,000 public transport operators in the Corporate Area, the only contact with the State is when operators are given a ticket by the police for trying to manoeuvre the traffic.

The nation, especially the transport sector, needs to know the traffic blueprint for the Kingston Metropolitan Transport Region for the next eight months.

We are presently being held to ransom and we are losing millions of dollars due to the continued gridlock on the Mandela, Spanish Town, Hagley Park, and Marcus Garvey Drive roadways.
