Today, the following changes will be made to traffic regulation in Half-Way Tree:
Buses exiting the Half-Way Tree Transportation Centre along Constant Spring Road will be restricted to right turning movement only. They will not be permitted to travel across Constant Spring Road to Suthermere Road.
When buses are exiting the Transport Centre onto Constant Spring Road, pedestrian movement will be allowed at the Constant Spring Road/South Odeon Avenue and Constant Spring Road/Suthermere Road intersections, while conflicting vehicular movement at both intersections will be stopped.
The traffic signal timing at both intersections will be adjusted to accommodate increased walk time for pedestrians.
Audible pedestrian signals will be installed at the pedestrian crossing at each intersection to assist the visually impaired.
Countdown pedestrian signals will be installed to inform pedestrians of available time to cross safely at each intersection.
Pedestrian crossings will be remarked and 'Do Not Block Intersection Yellow Boxes' will be installed at the centre of each intersection in addition to lane usage signs on Constant Spring Road and Hope Road.
