Circulation & Connectivity

The proposed road network provides connectivity between East Port of Spain and the Greater Port of Spain Metropolitan Area and the remainder of the country and also between and within urban villages. These roads will be upgraded to levels of service based on their assigned function in the network (see Tables 2.2 and 2.3). Improved accessibility will also be achieved by widening the internal public transportation network to include additional routes, appropriately sized buses for schools and commuters and rationalising the route taxis system. A hierarchy of roads and paths will be clearly defined considering their intended function and resultant width and surfacing.
The proposed circulation network is illustrated in Figure 2.2.
