Wow, so San Fernando isn't going to be left in the dust by Port of Spain. Those are some nice projects, I love what they're doing in T&T.

San Fernando | Images & Urban Discussions

Thought the second city deserved its own thread and here's a pic from Harris Promenade to kick it off

image hosted on flickr


In this picture you can see the chancery lane project on the right together with the San Fernando General Hospital (not a very popular place to be recently) and the San Fernando police station is the castle like building to the left.

Gosh! they really need to bury those lines. Also, the streets are an unorganized mess, total lack of planning.

I like that town. Can't expect everywhere to be perfect, but at least that town seems "livable", to me at least.

Good job Trin!

Post more pictures of San Fernando.
