THE EDITOR, Sir:
The experiment that the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) did along Mandela Highway recently was simply outrageous.
That the company is considering making already overused two-lane roadways into single-lane carriageways during peak hours, merely to facilitate buses that are often underutilised, is upsetting. Who thought up this plan?
If the JUTC wants to have a bus lane on Mandela Highway, then a new lane will have to be added for this purpose. It cannot function effectively as is. Any person with even an ounce of common sense can see this.
