Bus Terminal Proposed for Roseau

first_img Share 1706 Views   no discussions Share Share Tweet LocalNews Bus Terminal Proposed for Roseau by: – January 16, 2020                        Mahaut, Massacre, Fond Cole, Goodwill and St. Joseph bus stop Sharing is caring! A private sector entity is in discussions with Government to partner on a bus terminal for the city.Parry Bellot of ParBel enterprises says this is one much-needed facility that will bring multiple benefits to the capital while easing its major challenges of parking and congestion.“You have that in all developed cities even in the West Indies,” Bellot said speaking with Dominica Vibes on Wednesday, January 16th.He believes, “If we build that facility in Roseau or close to Roseau, it means that buses would not have to park in the streets of Roseau then that eases up parking in the city.”Bellot shared, “One of those days, I may want to visit a friend in Grand bay, where do I go to catch a Grand Bay bus? You have to ask people and some may know and some may not know. If there is one terminal for the buses, you will know where to go.”He adds that the site of the bus terminal will bring its own avenue for trade.“When you have one terminal for all the buses, there’s a lot of traffic…and an excellent place for vendors to do business- selling snacks, cold drinks and even craft.”Depending on how big the terminal is, all of those facilities could be included; the opportunity for small business people.Bellot says plans are advanced for the installation of parking meters in the capital and possibly Portsmouth to also address the congestion and parking challenges.                                                                 Parry Bellot (file photo)last_img read more
