St. Maarten Airport adds traffic signs for the physically-challenged

POSTED: 02/10/12 2:17 PM

St. Maarten – Four new traffic signs have been added in front of the Princess Juliana International Airport (PJIA) to aid in the drop-off and pick-up of the physically-challenged.  The signs were painted in the public access lane at each pedestrian crossing where there is a ramp to facilitate wheelchair access. This brings to 12, the total number of spots designated for the physically-challenged.

The spots in front of the airport are only for drop-off and pick-ups and not for parking, as they are in the tow-away zone. Wheelchair parking is provided in the airport’s parking lots. The request for the signs came from the airport’s Managing Director Regina Labega.

“As an international airport, PJIA must cater to all users, including the physically-challenged. Our signage must therefore clearly reflect this philosophy,” Labega said.

The signs were painted in January. At the same time, the airport used the opportunity to refresh the paint on the other eight signs in the employees’ and visitors’ parking areas.
