The Ministry of Works and Transport has partially opened the Priority Bus Route (PBR) to light motor vehicles.

In a media release, it said authorisation has been granted to light motor vehicles only, to utilise the PBR from Ramp 1400 — in the vicinity of Citrus Growers Association — to Pashley Street, Beetham.

It takes effect from October 16 until further notice, the ministry said. It did not give reasons for the decision.
