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.
