Berbice Bridge investors want ferry service cut

Reliable sources are confirming that the Berbice Bridge investors are proposing that the ferry service between Rosignol and New Amsterdam be cut. The idea was pitched to a few government officials including Winston Brassington, government's point man on investment.

Currently, the ferry service serves as the only official public mode of alternative transportation to the newly constructed bride for which toll has been set relatively steep. No doubt in an effort to make a windfall.

Some PPP/C members are not at all too happy about the proposal from the investors, fearing that the decision could hurt their future political chances since a bevy of supporters rely on the cheaper ferry service.

Brassington has promised to raise the issue with President Bharrat Jagdeo when he returns from Libya.
