Those who pass by the Cathï¿½drale Square, Port Louis have been witnessing the metamorphose of the famous “Parking Cathï¿½drale” to a beautiful green space, which is nearly completed.
Since a few weeks, the metallic sheets around the construction site have been removed, revealing one of the rare gardens of Port Louis.
Here are a few additional pictures which have been shot today.
Where is the parking?
But a big question arises here…
Where will these (nearly?) 100 cars be parked, now that the space has been converted to a garden?
At first, I heard that an underground parking would be constructed, along with this garden, but after a quick look today, I can’t see any entrance to this underground parking lol!
Would not it be wiser if they had invested into this parking?
The Capital is already lacking loads of parking problems, even the fare (at the Luna Park-besides BAI) has recently seen a rise from Rs20/hr to Rs50/hr!
Just imagine, more than 100% increase for a parking space for 1 hour!
Port Louis in empty mode
Finally, a last pic…taken at 16hrs today.
Port Louis practically empty since most of the offices have been closed early today to avoid any (possible) huge traffic jams due to the special road arrangements made for the arrival of the president of the people’s[…]..
However you will have to wait for some years before getting the shades out of the trees!
Let them grow first!
