Roadwork Nieuwestraat progressing steadily
WILLEMSTAD - Willemstad has been going through an extensive roadwork project to renovate the entire downtown area. It’s now the Nieuwstraat’s turn. This street is a popular street in the Pietermaai district.
According to the Department of Public Works, the works on the Nieuwstraat are progressing steadily. “Now all the sewers are renewed and most cable utilities are once again under the ground. We can start working now on the large repair work. The sidewalks and streets will be aligned with two colors clinker, which is a Dutch type brick especially used for pavement.”
More parking spaces will be created as well. This is a very popular entertainment area and the Department of Public Work has thought of that when preparing for the project.
