Concern over parking space

Luke Rawalai
Tuesday, February 11, 2014

THE lack of taxi parking spaces in Labasa has become a worry for taxi operators.

Labasa Taxi Association secretary Sujit Sharma said the town had 80 taxi parking spaces for 185 taxis operating in town.

Mr Sharma said they had written a letter to the Labasa Town Council requesting for more parking spaces.

"However, nothing has been done about our request for a long time now and it is really frustrating," he said.

"The fact that there are more taxis with less parking spaces is a show of how the town planning team has poorly carried out their work.

"Labasa market has a total of 41 parking spaces when 134 taxis operate from the area."

Responding to the concerns, council CEO Jitendra Prasad said they were aware of the drivers' concerns.

"There is a plan to build a new taxi stand at Naiyaca sub-division in order to cater for extra parking spaces," Mr Prasad said.
