Basseterre getting ready for traffic gridlock

The changes to come are designed to assist a smoother flow of traffic and the easier movement of pedestrians, while also making it hassle free for the operations of emergency vehicles.

The underlining objective however, according to officials, is safety; for everyone.

To this effect, the Traffic Department has put in place the following arrangements for the Miss St. Kitts Queen Pageant, Senior Calypso finals and Miss Caribbean Talented Teen Show, on December 28th, 29th and 30th respectively,   at Sugar Mill and Children Carnival on December 31st.

  • No parking will be permitted on the eastern side of Victoria Road between the Basseterre High School and the Old Boy School.
  • Traffic will flow northwards only along Victoria Road, ie towards the Moravian church direction.
  • Traffic will flow eastwards only along Lozack Road.
  • General parking will be at the Basseterre High School Playfield.
  • Sponsors and other officials with the relevant parking passes will park in a specially designated place at the BHS.
  • Only persons with the relevant parking pass will be permitted to park in Warner Park.
  • Restrictions will be effective from 6:00 pm nightly.
  • Security will be provided for vehicles parked at the BHS grounds until half hour after the shows.

They say traffic signs will be posted and officers will be on duty to enforce these restrictions. 

The authorities have also initiated a revised route for the Children’s Parade Dec 31st:

Route for Children’s Carnival:-
