RTA install a cover up on highway
By KUE DAVIS
CHANGES to traffic conditions at the intersections on the Pacific Highway at Split Solitary Road and Gaudrons Road were uncovered yesterday only to be promptly covered back up.
The RTA has removed the signs that restrict traffic from making right turns onto the Pacific Highway from Gaudrons Road and Split Solitary Road after they were prematurely erected.
"Signs advising motorists of the changes to right turn movements were installed prematurely and have been temporarily removed," an RTA spokesperson said.
The changes, which have been funded by a private developer and are a part of the new residential development off Split Solitary Road, will be re-instated when works are completed at the end of the month.
"The changes will include no right turn movements from Gaudrons Road and Split Solitary Road onto the highway between 8 am and 6 pm, and the installation of a U-turn facility on the Pacific Highway north of Sugarmill Road and south at the intersection of Old Coast Road," the RTA spokesperson said.
"Residents were advised of the proposed changes in August. The changed traffic conditions will improve road safety, which will soon experience increased volumes after the completion of the residential development."
