No need for more highway lanes
Posted: Thursday, January 25, 2024

No need for more highway lanes
THE EDITOR: We don't need more lanes on our highways, we need to decentralise Port of Spain and by extension the east-west corridor.

We are wasting money and precious asphalt by adding extra lanes on the Solomon Hochoy Highway. Besides, this money could have been spent on repairing the cable barriers and solar panels on the highways. But no, let's add more lanes, spread out the traffic and create more bottlenecks going north and south.

Mud volcano moods
The recent eruption of the Cascadoux mud volcano through new vents is part of the continuing activity of such land forms across Trinidad. In 1982 the present main vent was taller than it is today. In 1999 it had grown taller and seemed to loom over the nearest house below it. Today, it has released its gases through other vents, all on the same hill on which it had built itself.
