MINISTER SINANAN VISITS BRASSO SECO ON CHRISTMAS EVE


Senator the Honourable Rohan Sinanan, Minister of Works and Transport assured residents of the Brasso Seco community that continued relief will be delivered to the areas affected by a deluge of seasonably high rainfall.

The Honourable Minister gave the assurance following a tour on Saturday December 24th, 2016 where he assessed and examined on-going works being carried out by the Ministry of Works and Transport.

While Minister Sinanan pledged the assistance of the Ministry’s resources to repair damage caused by heavy rainfall and landslips, he also reinforced that, “the Government’s duty is to bring services and relief to the citizens in this area and will stop at nothing to make sure that everything is back to normal.”

Minister Sinanan was accompanied on the tour by his wife, who assisted him in spreading Christmas cheer to the community by distributing hampers and toys to residents and children.



MINISTRY OF WORKS AND TRANSPORT (MOWT) -UNIVERSITY OF THE WEST INDIES (UWI)

COASTAL DATA EXCHANGE

In 2016, the Ministry of Works and Transport signed an agreement with the University of the West Indies to facilitate the sharing of data collected by the Ministry along the east coast of Trinidad. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering leads a wider UWI team on a RDI (Research, Development and Impact) - funded project which is intended to investigate the erosion and flooding hazard on the east coast of Trinidad. This study aims to gather relevant physical data in a comprehensive manner and present said physical evidence in a format that is suitable for referencing, analyses, scientific research, decision support and policy development.


On Monday 12th December 2016 the Ministry, through the Coastal Protection Unit shared several datasets established by the Ministry through the implementation of the Mayaro/Guayaguayare Coastal Study. Such datasets include LIDAR and topographic surveys, beach profiles, bathymetry, wave and current data and sediment data. The Ministry looks forward to continued collaborations with research institutions, in order to ensure that in keeping with Government’s policies, decisions with respect to management of coastal erosion and coastal flooding are data based, scientific, holistic and evidence driven.


For more information on the Ministry’s projects and initiatives to address the increasing vulnerabilities due to coastal erosion and coastal flooding under the Critical Coastal Protection Programme, visit our website at www.mowt.gov.tt or contact the Coastal Protection Unit at coastal@mowt.gov.tt or 623-6797.

NEW TRAFFIC LAWS THAT WILL AFFECT YOU!     

                                 

The Ministry of Works and Transport proposes to amend the Legislative Framework governing the Fixed Penalty Traffic Ticketing System and introduce a Demerit Points System in Trinidad and Tobago. This would see the alignment of two pieces of legislation (the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Act, Ch. 48:50 and the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic (Enforcement and Administration) Act, Ch. 48:52), and the incorporation of legislation provisions for new measures that will affect you. The Ministry of Works and Transport invites members of the public to download the policy document, and submit their comments anonymously on the key features of the Demerit Points System which are proposed.

1. Fast Ferry Port in Toco Project

The Government of Trinidad and Tobago through the Ministry of Works and Transport has mandated the National Infrastructure Development Company Limited (NIDCO) to construct a first class road from Valencia to Toco and a new Fast Ferry Port in Toco. These initiatives will facilitate a fast alternative sea route to and from Tobago from East Trinidad and open up the entire north eastern region of Trinidad for new industrial, residential, eco-tourism and commercial development.

The Port is to be a multi-purpose facility to accommodate (in addition to the Fast Ferry Service between the islands), a Marina (pleasure crafts), a Coast Guard Facility and associated amenities. The Ferry is envisioned to accommodate cars, light commercials vehicles in addition to passengers.
