Traffic ease for World Cup

April 17, 2010

THE TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS for the International Cricket Council’s World Twenty20 will be less than those which were in place for Cricket World Cup.

Police public relations officer, Inspector David Welch, gave this assurance yesterday during a Press conference with Operations Inspector with the Traffic Department, Ronald Stanford, at police headquarters, Roebuck Street, The City.

Barbados is one of four territories selected to host games; the others are Guyana, St Kitts and St Lucia. Barbados will be the host venue for warm-up matches between April 27 and 29, and the Super Eight matches at Kensington Oval from May 5 to 9, while the finals will be held on May 16.

“We have put a plan in place which will provide a safe environment for patrons and safely manage traffic,” said Stanford.

He said there were some restrictions in place, such as Fontabelle being made into a one-way from two hours before the matches at Kensington Oval.
