Work is underway to revamp Market Square in Road Town.
A media release from the Ministry of Works & Utilities said the project “will add aesthetically to the city and provide more business opportunities for entrepreneurs, especially those in the farming community”.
Vendors who usually occupy the location to sell will be temporarily relocated to Fishlock Road, opposite the Virgin Islands Fire & Rescue Headquarters until the works are completed.
Meanwhile, Works Minister Kye Rymer said meetings were held with vendors to inform them of the relocation.
He said one such meeting was held on July 10 and “vendors were given an opportunity to share concerns and suggestions as plans were brought forward to modernise the Road Town market square”.
“The design for the temporary location was also presented to those vendors who were in attendance,” Rymer stated.
The vendors were also shown their potential staging areas, he further stated.
The development of the market square is expected to be another change for Road Town as part of the government’s ‘Transformation for Resilience and Sustainability: SMART strategies, empowered people and green development’ plan.
