Traffic calming trial in St Mary

| February 15, 2013 | 0 Comments

Transport and Technical Services (TTS) is asking the public what they think about a proposal to slow down traffic through the St Mary village area.

The Parish of St Mary has asked TTS to look into slowing down vehicles passing through the St Mary village area, especially La Rue des Buttes around the garage.

At the end of February, the Department proposes to install two trial road narrowings – each five metres long – 50 metres either side of the garage. In those sections there will only be room for one vehicle at a time to pass.

TTS will use bolt-down plastic kerbs, held in place with concrete, to narrow the roads. Road signs and yellow lines will be provided to ensure that drivers are clear who has right of way. Gaps will be left between the temporary kerbs and roadside walls so that pedestrians are able to pass.

Should the road narrowings not be a success, TTS can easily remove the kerbs and the signage and poles can be re-used elsewhere.

Rob Cabot, Senior Engineer for Transport Policy said:” We are keen to hear from anyone who might be affected by the scheme, either in support of the proposals or if they have any concerns which we may need to address.”

Members of the public can view a diagram of the project in the consultations section on and comments can be sent by email to or by post to the Department at its South Hill address.
