Persons with disabilities (PWDs) will soon have designated parking spaces in Bridgetown.
Two spaces have been allocated at Tudor Street, and one each at Prince William Henry Street and McGregor Street at their junctions with Broad Street.
Come Friday, May 13, Minister of People Empowerment and Elder Affairs, Kirk Humphrey, will assign the spaces during an official ceremony, which will be held at Prince William Henry Street (next to the Royal Shop on Broad Street), beginning at 9:30 a.m.
He is expected to be joined by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Transport, Works and Water Resources, Santia Bradshaw, and Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of People Empowerment and Elder Affairs, Corey Lane.
The designation of parking spaces for PWDs follows requests made for such by the National Disabilities Unit.
