Mea­sures to im­prove Bay traf­fic flow

Zululand Observer - Monday - - NEWS - Tam­lyn Jolly

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.
