A COMPLETELY new highway network in five to ten years will allow commuters to get from one side of Trinidad to the next in two and half hours, Prime Minister, Patrick Manning said yesterday.

Manning linked productive levels to the effectiveness and efficiencies of a well integrated and improved road network and alluded to its development as critical to the country moving forward.

Stating just how Government intended to move forward with its comprehensive plan, he said all contractors interested in tendering will be notified that the job is on a concessionaire basis.
This, he explained, will result in contractors designing, building and maintaining highways, by toll system.

Manning said that the contractors will make back their money via the toll system.
After contractual agreements expire between government and contractors, they (contractors) will realise their investments and make profits and "in about 30 to 50 years, highways are handed back to government for its control".

"The point I'm trying to get at, is that it will not cost the Government money," the Prime Minister said.

Ah boy, the tun tun learn something from the UNC. This is how the UNC use to conduct they business, at no cost to the taxpayer.

Just imagine it take he and ah whole cabinet of monkeys 5 years to figure this out.
