Measures to improve Bay traffic flow
THE construction of a roundabout, or three-way traffic circle at the Grunter Gully and Krewelkring intersection in Meerensee is aimed at improving traffic control as well as pedestrian safety.
Other road improvements currently under construction in Meerensee include a new traffic light intersection at the Grunter Gully and Angler’s Rod intersection, also to allow for better traffic flow and control.
‘Future plans are to increase the lanes on the road and remove traffic calming or speed humps,’ said City of uMhlathuze Communications Manager, Mdu Ncalane.
‘These are all aimed at strategically improving mobility of vehicles, noting also that there is a school nearby.
‘The nature and design of our city did not cater for such drastic growth in traffic and vehicles on our roads, hence redesign and reconfiguration have become necessary.’
Speed humps recently constructed in Ngwelezana were also necessary as a traffic calming measure in a high accident zone owing to high traffic volumes.
The three-way traf c circle at the intersection of Grunter Gully and Krewelkring in Meerensee is almost complete Tamlyn Jolly
