St. James Experimental Traffic Scheme

St. James Experimental Traffic Scheme Printable Version

04 Dec 2012


The public would have noticed the signs and road marking that have been recently installed on a number of side streets.  These are for the new traffic measures that are due to be implemented, with effect from Monday 10th December 2012.
 
Until then, however, all existing restrictions and traffic flow arrangements remain in force.  It is, therefore, important that drivers bear this in mind and proceed with caution.  In particular, the new road markings may cause some uncertainty, especially at the entrances to two-way streets that are about to be made one-way.
 
The Ministry wishes for road users to be accommodating and exercise tolerance, in order to maintain safety during this period of transition.

Listed below are just some of the major highlights of the new traffic measures:
