The government said it has arrived at a settlement in the matter involving irate souvenir vendors at Horsford Hill and the National Parks Authority (NPA).

The dispute stems from the lack of bathroom facilities and running water for vendors and tourists who respectively work and patronise the businesses located there.

According to the weekly Cabinet notes, Member of Parliament for St Paul, EP Chet Greene, taxi drivers, vendors and law enforcement officers have reached a compromise.

Following the negotiations, it was agreed that on cruise ship days, taxi drivers will be allowed to park for short periods in a designated taxi-stand area that will be marked.

It was also agreed that traffic wardens would be present to assist with orderly parking and safe crossing of the busy highway, on those cruise-ship days.

The agitated vendors were also told that bathrooms will be constructed by the NPA for their use and someone would be hired to clean and monitor them during the day.
