Street protest against Caribbean Princess shuttle buses
« on: May 20, 2024, 03:47:24 PM »
"Yesterday, a small group of residents gathered with signs near the roundabout - to make their cause heard and to 'keep up the pressure'."

"It was timed to coincide with the arrival of The Caribbean Princess cruise ship. Buses arrived all morning dropping passengers from the 3,600-passenger liner off into Weymouth.

A police officer and a port police officer were present at the protest, which saw around a dozen people take part. Several tourists briefly stopped to chat to them.

Resident Marc Moore said: "The road is not big enough for the traffic that is coming here. It rattles our house. It literally rattles the glasses sitting on the shelf."

Maybe they should dedicate some of their port charges to fix their roads?
