This week is the peak of independence events and the Traffic Department of Dominica Police Force says drivers will be better off taking public transport or carpooling.
The police spoke with the press on Monday morning to give direction to patrons and specifically drivers ahead of Tuesday’s Creole in the Park and the weekend’s World Creole Music Festival.
Assistant Superintendent of Police, Leanna Edwards outlined traffic guidelines for creole in the park.
From 6pm to 8 pm, Virgin Lane will not be accessible to east-bound drivers but will be open for those heading north on bath road.
The Morne Prosper and Wotten Waven bus stops will be relocated to Bath Road between Virgin and and King George V street opposite the Convent Preparatory School.
Parents picking up convent students will be allowed to do so between 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm.
For the World Creole Music Festival, Superintendent Richmond Valentine appealed to patrons to walk, take public transport or share rides because parking will be difficult.
He says says the city of Roseau is available for parking in accordance with the law.
