Transport and Technical Services (TTS) is proposing to install two new zebra crossings on the junction of Grenville Street and Green Street and would like to know if the public have any comments to make on the proposals.
TTS was asked to look at the merits and feasibility of these crossings as part of the Sustainable Transport Policy by the Connétable of St Helier. The existing island at that location was found to be well used by pedestrians to cross the busy junction. However, a zebra crossing with widened pavements would make it easier for pedestrians and drivers to see each other and promote safer crossing.
Following on from that, the Department has drawn up some draft proposals which include widening of the pavements on the north, east and west of the junction and installing zebra crossings with Belisha beacons to cross Grenville Street.
Further details and drawings of the project can be found on www.gov.je/consult. Anyone wishing to comment on the proposals is asked to contact the Department either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing addressed to Transport Policy – Grenville Street Crossing, Transport and Technical Services, PO Box 412, South Hill, St Helier by Friday 7 February.
