St Martin bridge opening changes

There was discussion this morning on Cruisersnet in the Caribbean that there have been changes in the openings of the bridge in St. Martin. Does anyone know the new schedule?

They are wrong, Gord.
That's why there's so much confusion. LOL
One of the chandelries just printed out thousands of leaflets... and they are all wrong... only in the Caribbean!

Re: St Martin bridge opening changes

We cleared in the Dutch side last Friday morning, be aware that (French side ) clearing in at marina Fort Louis can only be done now, if you stay in the marina or as we were told with in 100m , a marina rib now checks the outer anchorage area so if you just say that you are anchored in the lagoon they will not allow clearance which must now be done at the ferry dock.
We spent 3 hrs running around, things have tightened up since the Paris bombing!
