Minister of Works and Transport Rohan Sinanan says he plans to ask Cabinet to ramp up the fines for overweight vehicles by more than 500 percent.

This after the ministry found that the majority of damage to roads were being caused by overloaded trucks.

The minister was speaking at the opening of a newly renovated bridge in Maracas, St Joseph this morning where he said the contractor encountered some unexpected delays and cost overruns.
