Work to re-pave the main street in Santa Maria on the island of Sal is now underway. When work is complete the new paving will be a great improvement and it is understood that the street will become a pedestrian zone. The new paving includes symbols associated with the island, such as turtles and sailing boats. This also enables bars and restaurants in the street to have more tables and chairs outside adding to the lively scene in the town.
