OSEL routes back to normal

OSEL routes are running smoothly and all services have been fully restored, transport minister Marios Demetriades said on Tuesday.

Speaking after a House watchdog committee, he offered his reassurances that the ministry would ensure no one was squandering public money.

“It is our duty in cooperation with the companies… to find ways to improve and boost the services offered”, which was why the ministry was doing everything it could, he said.

His comments come after a week of disputes after an OSEL shareholder slammed the company for cooking the books and bribing officials, and the ministry of not exerting enough control.

Demetriades expressed his hope that telematics will soon be installed in buses, as part of a programme to boost the services. Four applications have already been submitted to the tenders authority he added.

The project also entails smart ticketing and a fuel system control in the buses.
