Streetcar To Guarantee A Flow Of Cruise Visitors To Mainstreet

March 6th 2012, Aruba.

Prime Minister Mike Eman inspecting renovation works of mainstreet Oranjestad

ORANJESTAD-Prime Minister Mike Eman recently monitored the renovation progress of the mainstreet in
Oranjestad. At present concrete is being poured in the middle of mainstreet for the eventual placement of
the streetcar rails by a Dutch contractor specialized in rails placement. The aim is to have the streetcar
riding from the cruise terminal making a loop through mainstreet Oranjestad by the end of December 2012.

The intention of the government is to have tour busses stationed at a central location on mainstreet,
instead of their present location at the entrance of the cruise terminal. Cruise visitors will be very likely to
take the streetcar to the tourbus location on mainstreet. In addition, the relocation of the tour busses will
guarantee a flow of cruise visitors to mainstreet which is good for commercial businesses in the area.

The renovated mainstreet will have numerous trees, a street car rail with stops, benches, fountains, kiosks
and decorative lightning. The mainstreet will be partly closed for car traffic once completed. The goal of
the government is to bring the once vibrant commercial center of the island back to life. The renovated
mainstreet and the streetcar is to serve as a spill for continued development of new, and the renovation of
existing buildings in downtown Oranjestad.
