St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force has implemented some temporary traffic regulations in the area of the Warner Park Cricket Stadium, where the 6ixty Cricket Tournament is being played over the next few days.
Sergeant Sophia Henry of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force informed the public the changes to the flow of traffic and parking rules during the period August 24 to 28 in the vicinity of the Warner Park Cricket Stadium.
Henry explained “For the game this week which is from the 24th to the 28th, Victoria Road will be a one way, so no traffic will be able to flow from North to South. It will flow from South to North. Parking will only be permitted on one side and that is on the western side of Victoria Road. So there will be cones on the eastern side, so no parking will be allowed there. At East Park Range, you only can park on the eastern side. You won’t be allowed to park on the western side and the road directly behind National Housing Corporation (NHC) that runs from east to west or west to east, no traffic will be allowed to flow from east to west. It will be able to flow from west to east on to Wellington Road. You won’t be able to travel both ways on that road; and on East Park Range, traffic will only be allowed to travel from North to South; so you come from Taylor’s Range and you come down on Lozac Road. Also, parking will not be permitted for the public on Lozac Road between East Park Range and Bird Street- that’s the road before the police station. Those parkings are for VIP personnel only. So if anybody parks in these areas, remember your vehicle will be towed.”
Sergeant Henry urged motorists to follow the traffic orders given and pay close attention to the cones and other road signs that will be present in the vicinity of Warner Park over the next few days. She warned that police and traffic wardens will be working along the streets and if any motorists violate the law, he or she will be penalized.
Towing of any vehicle breaching the regulations will cost the offenders EC $200.00.
