ST ANN'S BAY, St Ann:
THE ST ANN Parish Council has backtracked on its announcement that traffic changes implemented in St Ann's Bay late 2014 will be gazetted.
The council has instead implemented several changes to traffic flow in the capital as it seeks "to arrive at a consensus which suits the masses and, in turn, provides a more orderly town with regard to vehicular and pedestrian traffic".
The parish council said there continues to be concerns over the current system and at a meeting last Friday decided to review it.
The changes are expected to take effect at 6 a.m. today. The changes will again run for a two-week trial period after which there will be a review.
The changes are as follows:
1. Main Street - One way east from Round-about to Bravo Street.
2. Jail Lane - One way north to south.
3. Wharf Street - One way south to north.
4. Harbour Street - One way west to east (Wharf Street to Bravo Street).
5. Market Street - One way south to north.
6. Marcus Garvey Way - One way south to north (Gully Road to Main Street).
7. Musgrave Street - One way east to west (Bravo Street to Jail Lane).
8. Hills Street - One way east to the parish library.
9. Church Crescent - One way up to the intersection of Church Street.
The council said Park Avenue will remain one way, north to south, to Main Street; Bravo Hill will remain one way up to King Street; and one way from King Street to Marcus Garvey Way. Vehicular traffic on all other roads will remain the same.
