I've been hearing about this 'underground railroad' so to speak for some time now but didn't believe that it really existed. It wasn't until a very good friend of mine called me horrified this morning because she was informed that not only is the tunnel already under construction, but there is a target date of completion of July/August 2011and people will be expected to begin using it as soon as the end of the year!!!. The name of the tunnel is called the I95U (U for I95 UNDERGROUND) and it is called the Caribbean International Highway.
From what I'm understanding, originally the highway was to go only to Haiti but has plans to now pass through St. Kitts & Nevis, Montserrat, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St Lucia, Jamaica, St Vincent & The Grenadines, Grenada and Venezuela! Now people, if you know like I know, you KNOW if it goin' Venezuela it GOIN TRINIDAD!
What will that mean for Trinidad and Tobago?
I for one am quiet comfortable with taking Caribbean Airlines yes! I don't do the Holland Tunnel for a couple minutes, you could imagine me under water for all dem hours?!
