Cruise in Port

The Cabinet met with two officials from the Antigua and Barbuda Taxi Association; they operate from the Heritage Quay Port.

The officials complained bitterly about unauthorized taxi cabs and private car owners that are poaching cruise passengers and are at times using unauthorized vehicles to carry tourists.

The Cabinet has promised to strengthen the law to deter the behavior that might ultimately lead to liability.

The taxi drivers identified a number of streets whose surfaces are in need of repairs.

The Minister of Works has indicated that each street identified is on the worksheet to be completed before the end of the year.

Antigua has more than 400 miles of road. Floods and excessive rainfall have caused many of the street surfaces to deteriorate rapidly.

They were poorly-built during the previous administration. A new method using roll-out concrete is being relied upon to repair street surfaces.
