Detour close by Paradise

Mar01

During the years we have mentioned the Watty Vos Boulevard project (WVB), which is a big project to make a new ring around Oranjestad to connect the airport more directly with the hotel area. With this ring they will be circumventing the old road that would take our visitors via the harbor. And anyone who has had to go to or from the hotel to the airport on a day that there are cruise ships in, knows how traffic gets stuck.

The project has been started last year. And a part of the project also entails to improve and beatify certain main roads that connect with the WVB. As of today, Thursday, March 1st, 2018, the road between the round-about by Pizza hut and the traffic lights by Superfood, has been closed off. This is to recap the road and to built a big round-about where the traffic lights are at Superfood. the road leading from those lights towards the Eagle Beach Area will also be upgraded.

Please keep that in mind when you may want to visit Superfood!

The planning is that it will take 3 months to finish this part of the project. As the WVB project goes along, we will keep you updated on its progress.

UPDATE: After a LOT of negative comments on,among others, Facebook, the Minister of Infrastructure, Mr Otmar Oduber, decided to delay the closure of the highway between the round-about at Pizza Hut to Superfood. This is due to the difficulties participants to the traffic on the area have encountered. if everything goes well, a definite decision is expected on Monday, March 5th, 2018. We will keep you up to date via our Facebook page.
