Fish Vendors To Relocate From Montagu Ramp
After years of debate over how to handle the traffic congestion and chaotic environment at the Montagu ramp, fish vendors there have agreed to be relocated in accordance with plans for the overall development of the beach and park area.
Plans for their relocation are still “a work in progress”, however, government officials said they are likely to be placed along the neighbouring seawall in a developed space which will provide sanitary facilities and additional parking.
Earl Deveaux, Minister of Environment, said the proposed design includes a sidewalk along the water for access to vendors; improved parking at the northern end of beach; and additional facilities for boaters.
There are also plans to redirect the road so there is no longer a conflict between east-bound motorists and boaters seeking to access the ramp.community, fishing, traffic
