Oranje Straat is ready

Oranje Straat, the road leading to the Old Age Home has been resurfaced and the work was finished last week. This work has been executed by The Department of Public Works and is financed through the budget of the Island Government.
Commissioner of Public Works, Bruce Zagers, stated that plans to repair the road had been in the process for some time. “There was a delay due ongoing discussions about ideas to expand the health care facilities in that area. Recently the road had to be excavated to place a septic pit for the Old Age Home. Because of this construction and the necessary road closure, it was decided to no longer delay the project.” That is why the road has been resurfaced. Drivers are informed that the road is open again.
