Metamorphosis Main Street Punda
WILLEMSTAD - The Ministry of Traffic, Transport and Urban Planning has announced in a press release that they will make some extensive changes to the Breedestraat or Main Street in Punda.
The street will be transformed into a “shared street”, meaning that the street and the sidewalk will be at the same height.
Bollards will separate the street from the sidewalk and parking along the road will no longer be possible. The Ministry contacted the representatives of the taxi drivers and together they have opted for seven new taxi spots on the Governor’s plaza in front of the Governor’s palace.
The project starts in September and should be completed in October, before the cruise season starts.
