Improved directional maps and signs will be one of the features of this year’s Denbigh Agricultural and Industrial Show.
Christopher Emmanuel, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS), told JIS News that the five maps and 100 signs that will be mounted, would assist patrons to find their favourite Denbigh attractions and provide reference points for regrouping.
The maps, which are 1.2 metres by 1.2 metres (4 feet by 4 feet), will be strategically placed at gate 1, which is the main entrance; gates 2 and 3; gate 4, which is the VIP entrance and gate 6, which is the pedestrian entrance.
Smaller directional signs will be posted throughout the grounds, including on the trees, to point the way to attractions such as the kiddies village, horticultural display, farm queen booth, livestock tent, 4-H centre, agro-processors area, commodity boards and facilities such as restrooms, medical centre, Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) bus park and the car parks. Well-lit parking signs will be at gate 2 near Jackson Avenue and gate 6.
Mr. Emmanuel told JIS News that efforts have been made to reduce traffic jams and to ensure that entrances and exits were easily accessible.
The maps and signs were produced by the National Land Agency, which is one of the sponsors for Denbigh 2006.
A project of the JAS, the three-day Denbigh Agricultural Show will be held in May Pen, Clarendon from Saturday, August 5 to Monday, August 7.
