Traffic flow changes accommodate work on LPH

| 13/11/2017 | 13 Comments

(CNS): As government continues with its road works programme in George Town, the next phase of work on the upgrade of Linford Pierson Highway to four lanes will see traffic flow changes in the area. The National Roads Authority said that from this week, east bound motorists will be diverted onto the new highway, and urged drivers to follow all relevant signs and road markings. All traffic heading westbound on the LPH will need to merge to one lane just after Halifax Road and combine with eastbound traffic, officials said.

All traffic heading eastbound on the Linford Pierson Highway will be diverted to the new highway just before Halifax Road. All traffic existing Halifax Road will need to turn left.

The NRA apologised for any inconvenience this may cause as they work to widen and improve the LPH.

    CNS can you let us know why the police has blocked off the road on spotts two morning in a row (that connects you to the newlands bypass and more importantly to Prospect primary.

    CNS: I sent your question to Auntie to see if she can find out.

    In other news the NRA announced that to ease confusion at roundabouts, the public will be allowed to drive around them which ever way they like.

    I think they should keep it one lane and not two going into Town to avoid the slow down of trafic by Halifax Road.

      The whole project is pointless….even when completed it will be down to a one lane bottleneck after Agnes Way because of the riding stables. Just pushing the jam further down the road.

      I drove on Monday evening no change. CBS thank you for keeping the public informed.
      Can you ask the NRA one question and give them one comment.When will all the road works be completed?
      Please ask them not to start any more road works until they have completed all the road works including L.P. Hwy, S Sound , Crewe RD, and get Mr. D to finish the E Tibbetys Hwy. Some of these projects have taken over three years and we have had enough.

        You might be right! The sun is shining today & the roads dried out yesterday, but all the construction vehicles stationary along the LPH this morning. Just two men standing on the road that should have opened at the weekend. Nope not working. Just staring at it for the entire time I was stuck in the morning traffic jam…..

    • Burt says:

      Obviously the rain over the weekend postponed the opening

        Obviously no one can communicate the reasons for the delay…be it waterlogged roads or staff that might catch a cold if they get wet…
