Story PictureIf you have plans to go to the Memorial Park to attend the September twenty-first official ceremony or watch the fireworks display, please be advised that security and traffic control will be very tight. Today the Police Department informed News Five that there will be only one main entry and exit into the area but there will be at least sixty officers on duty to direct motorists, cyclists and pedestrians to their designated locations. According to Traffic Department head, A.S.P. Aaron Guzman, the operation takes effect from five thirty on the evening of September twentieth.

A.S.P. Aaron Guzman, O.C. Traffic Department
?Vehicles won?t be allowed to park on South Park Street that is the street between the Memorial Park and Chateau Caribbean. No parking will be allowed from the corner of Cork Street, which is in front of the Radisson and the sea to North Park Street, and that is the street you use to go to the Mexican Embassy. That will be left for V.I.P.?s parking and people who want to see the fireworks will be allowed to stay in front of Chateau Caribbean Hotel all the way down to Baron Bliss lighthouse. They will be a break from the Chateau Caribbean to the North Park Street and the sea for the V.I.P. area, and from that area going north towards the princess or Central Bank Area people can stay and park out there and watch the fireworks.?

?For the morning of the twenty-first, starting at five a.m. we will control traffic from a further point, which is the corner of Queen and North Front Street. You will not be allowed a regular trip to go in that area there. If you live in the area, if you have a business in the area, if you are an important or invited guest you will be allowed to go in the area. If you are a guest of the Radisson or the Chateau Caribbean Hotel you will be allowed to go in there. But traffic will be controlled because we have the presidential visit.?

The best thing you can do is exercise some patience and simply follow police instructions to avoid any problems. According to the authorities, they will also be keeping an eye on parked vehicles so families can enjoy the activities without fear of theft.
