Noise, dust and polluting fumes are the result of the constant traffic jams along the promenade road in Papeete, Tahiti. It’s a recognised problem which has no solution.
On special occasions such as sports events, the police block off the road to motorised vehicles allowing recreational use to the public.
Sunday was a pollution free day for families to enjoy. People of all ages arrived with their bicycles, trikes, scooters, skateboards, rollerskates…
The road sloping down through the underpass was most popular with the teenagers but small children and grandparents tested it out too.
It’s good to see people having fun and showing courteous respect to one another to avoid injuries.
What a pity the road can’t be closed every Sunday.
