New bus shed in Scarborough, one of the largest built in Tobago

Tobago House of Assembly’s (THA) Settlements, Urban Renewable and Public Utilities Clarence Jacob has cleared up the cost of the newly built bus sheds in Tobago.

Speaking at this week’s virtual post-Executive Council media briefing on Wednesday, Jacob said they cost $55,000 each.

Before the THA January 25, 2021 elections, documents purporting to show invoices and payments for the sheds surfaced, becoming a talking point on the campaign trail.
On Wednesday, Jacob said six bus sheds are complete.

“…I want to correct some misinformation …where it was said those bus shelters cost $208,000… Those bus sheds were completed for $50,000 plus vat,” Jacob said
