National Local Roads/Street SIgnage Programme Launch in Rio ClaroThe National Local Roads/Street Signage Programme is designed to develop municipalities across Trinidad by bringing recognition to streets, replacement of defaced signs and aid in safer transportation by easing navigation to destinations. It will act as a conduit for recognising notable community figures and ensuring the faster response of emergency services and facilitate easier locating of critical amenities in communities. It will result in more efficient delivery of municipal services as well as assist other government initiatives such as setting up of public utilities, deed assessments and census taking and surveying.
