Closing bridge: Minister knew nothing
WILLEMSTAD – The Minister of Traffic and Transportation, Suzy Camelia-Römer was heavily criticized because of the closure of the highly trafficked Juliana Bridge during rush hour.
The bridge was closed off yesterday because of the filming of the movie Double Play between 5 and 7. Both sides were closed.
During the weekly press conference of the Council of Ministers, Minister Camelia-Romer indicated that she wasn’t aware of this. She did not grant permission to close off the bridge and especially during the rush hour.
Another problem was that many drivers did not know, which caused serious traffic problems. The closure was barely communicated.
The big question is now, who authorized the closure of the bridge. The Minister was not able to answer this either.
