07 Mar 2018


Minister of Works and Transport, Senator the Honourable Rohan Sinanan, has designated a safe zone of 2km of the roadway for a weekly community wellness and physical activity programme in Diego Martin. The Ministry of Works and Transport has approved the installation of new traffic signs along the Diego Martin Highway to inform residents and drivers of this new initiative, which is the first of its kind in the Caribbean.

Keep Moving Family and Fitness Sundays (KMFFS) has been granted the portion of Highway (Wendy Fitzwilliam Blvd. to Sierra Leone Road) from 6AM to 9AM every Sunday for walking, jogging, riding, skating, aerobics and other fun physical activities.

During this time, motorists will have to use alternative routes to get to their final destinations. At present, a law is being drafted to protect patrons of this programme, in the event of, a driver violating the designated area.

Minister Sinanan lauded the effort of the programme organizers, Phillips Promotions and its many sponsors, for developing such a worthwhile programme that promotes health and strengthens community living. He also expressed his desire to see similar programmes initiated across Trinidad and Tobago.

Vested with the responsibility to promote road safety, the Ministry of Works and Transport remains committed to the task of establishing safer road use for all. In this particular case, the additional signage helps to support and encourage safe cycling and pedestrian activity in the area. It clearly defines road space for bikes and cars, promoting a more orderly flow of traffic and removes slower-moving road users from active vehicular traffic lanes.
