Survey for PSVs

Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, April 01, 2014

THE LTA will this month conduct a national survey of public service vehicle licence holders.

While addressing the issue of illegal operations during a recent stakeholders meeting in Labasa, authority general manager Operations Faiyum Ali said they were looking into recruiting about 50 personnel for the task.

"The survey is scheduled for this month and the personnel are required to collect data of all PSV licence holders," Mr Ali said.

"The survey will include the PSV permits, areas of operations of drivers, population and the volume of vehicles, to name a few.

"It is a huge task but we are willing to embark on it because this will help us have a clear picture of the operations of PSV drivers and permit holders.

"We will analyse the data collected before holding consultations throughout the country to inform stakeholders about our plans." Mr Ali said the survey would also help them identify illegal operations on our roads.

Meanwhile, divisional police commander Northern SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau requested stakeholders at the meeting to help the police and LTA in ridding illegal operations.
