The Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board (NPIPB) has adopted The Queen’s Staircase to restore the popular tourist attraction to its former glory.

The project will involve an initial investment of $200k, with work to begin this week.

Plans include restoring the water feature, landscaping and improving site signage.

Officials said during a press conference yesterday that work will not impact visitors to the site, with most of the work to be done around the waterfall and out of the walkway.

Put some public toilets in while you're at and see that they're maintained to a higher standard than most of the others like at Saunders Beach and Montagu. Maybe they should come with picture instructions on the doors as how to use a modern toilet or urinal seeing as many of our people are still using an outhouse and almond leaf, pissing against the outside wall of the building and can't read anyway.
