The travelling public at the Enterprise Leguan ferry stelling is calling on the relevant authorities to intervene as for the past month they have been without a stairway at the facility.
Some time ago when a Transport and Harbour ferry was mooring at the stelling it collided with three large planks that were near the stelling. The force with which the ferry struck the piles sent them into the step which was used by the travelling public to get in and out of speedboats.
Ever since, the collapsed step has been left merely hanging onto the rest of the stelling.
However, this has not gone down well with the speedboat operators who said that daily they are made to pay a mooring fee of $640 to the Transport and Harbour’s Department. Currently there are 11 boats plying the Enterprise — Parika route.
What is more frustrating to the speedboat operator s is the fact that ever since the stairway has collapsed no effort has been made to have repairs done. Now that the step is out of order the boats are forced to use the ramp which was built for the ferry, and is a safety hazard since it was not built to facilitate small boats.
