Port Vila Promenade Progress report published to the VANUATU TOURISM INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT update for Aug 2016.

The goal of the VTIP is to encourage tourists and locals to use and enjoy the Port Vila Portside and Seafront precincts – including Fatumaru Bay Park. One key feature of the VTIP is the 1.2km pedestrian promenade from the Port Vila Market House, along the seafront, past La Tentation restaurant, Fung Kuei and the Anchor Inn carpark and into Fatumaru Bay Park to Chantilly’s Hotel.

The VTIP will provide clear meandering pathways for people to move along Fatumaru Bay Park and then onto a 4.5m wide concrete promenade that will enable pedestrians to walk right through to the Fruit and Vegetable Market House along the sea front.

The design of the promenade is to reflect a pandanus woven mat with a subtle alternating colour and feel of the pavement segments. Pedestrians will get to enjoy the open park spaces with additional seating and lighting at regular intervals along the promenade and in the parks.

The park works, in particular at Fatumaru Bay Park will include a range of local trees and shrubs grown in Vanuatu, picnic tables, a new playground, improved beach areas and rock pools close to the shore.

 Upgrade to Fatumaru Bay Park open spaces and provide access to the water.

As a French national, with West Indian roots, “joie de vivre” is always on the agenda with Céline. Having a wealth of skills gleaned in a number of senior administrative roles, it became apparent to Céline that a more cut and thrust career was required to keep her motivated. When Caillard & Kaddour offered Céline the opportunity to be on the front line of real estate sales, it was accepted without hesitation. Céline has proven to be a natural sales consultant; not only multi-lingual with the ability to easily communicate with people from all walks of life, her infectious smile and courteous manner means that she is already an important team member and great asset to the company. As a young mother of two boys, as well as a wife to a cattle ranch manager, every minute of the day is well organised, which shines through in her professional life, as does her ability to listen, ask the right questions, deliver when required the realities of life and most importantly, offer solutions. It is Céline’s ambition to make her new found profession a lifetime career.
