All eyes on bridge

Social Share

HUNDREDS?gathered yesterday in the area around the Chamberlain Bridge in The City to see it lifted to allow boats taking part in today’s Royal Regatta Barbados 2014 to dock in the inner basin of the Careenage.
They also got a chance to see the Earl and Countess of Wessex, Prince Edward and Princess Sophia, as they stopped by Independence Square to greet team members participating in the sailing event.
For many people who witnessed the occasion from the Wickham Lewis Boardwalk, the Charles Duncan O’Neal Bridge and Independence Square, it was the first time they were seeing the bridge raised.
What made the occasion even more special was that it coincided with the celebration of the 375th anniversary of the Parliament of Barbados.
