TCD Responds to Truckers Concerns

The Ministry of Transport has received reports of recent activities at Penno’s Wharf, St George, where it is alleged that unauthorized dumpster trailers were used to move aggregate. 

Present regulations stipulate that dumpster trailers may only be used for transporting loads that cannot be safely carried on a regular truck and no permit was issued for the reported activity.

It should be noted that regular trucks are capable of, and in most instances are used to, safely transport aggregate materials. The Department has previously granted permission for large-scale demolition projects, such as those at the Bermudiana Beach and Club Med Hotel sites. 

The Transport Control Department will conduct a thorough investigation into this matter and appropriate enforcement action will be taken to address any violation of regulations or permit conditions.
