Again footbridge Waaigat – Punda
WILLEMSTAD – A new footbridge will be constructed right across the street from the Marshe Nobo (the new market). There was a bridge at this location already, but it disappeared and there was never a reason given for this.
Now the Ministry of Economic Development and Curaçao Ports Authority (CPA) commissioned the construction of such a bridge. The Dutch company Meerdink Bruggen was commissioned for this project. The Dutch company specializing in bridges was also responsible for the renovation of the L.B. Smith bridge, which connects Punda to Scharloo. This bridge is located right across the street from the Maritime Museum on the Scharloo side and Customs on the Punda side.
It is not clear how much the construction of the new footbridge will be.
