Probably they are doing a feasibility study for the construction of new roads through a Private Finance Initiative (PFI).
The capital cost of construction and maintenance costs over a fixed period (say, 20 years) come from the private sector. The investor owns the road and recoups his expenses together with a profit through charging a toll for the use of the road. At the end of the fixed period, the road is turned over to the Government for a previously agreed fee. The investor will have to maintain the road to a certain previously agreed standard while it is under his control.
PFIs are the way major roadways are being constructed in Europe and Africa. The use of the road will all depend on how much people value their time (spend 45 minutes on a rough road to get from home to MovieTowne, or pay $5.00 and spend 20 minutes on a billiard table smooth road to get from home to MovieTowne?).
Tolls cannot work with a population that is so small. Less than 750k people on the road... the effective toll would need to be in the region of $20.... there is no road worth that kind of money in TnT.
This government (and past governments) all fail. Kindergarten tactics and follow fashion strategy will ultimately lead to the Jamacianization of Trinidad.
