Transport and Technical Services (TTS) is proposing to install six new bus shelters and wants to hear any comments on the sites chosen.
TTS is committed to achieving the objectives of the States of Jersey Sustainable Transport Policy, which aims to reduce peak hour traffic by 15%. One of the means identified by which this can be achieved is increasing the number of bus passengers. It is hoped that by creating a better environment at the bus stops, more people will use the bus.
Over the last couple of years, TTS installed 18 new shelters across the Island. They have now identified an additional six sites where it is possible and desirable to erect new bus shelters, but before they do so, they are giving the public an opportunity to comment on the proposals. The locations are:
• Grouville Arsenal (Southbound)
• Clos des Sables (East bound)
• Rozel terminus
• Dicq Slipway (Westbound)
• Midland Stores (Southbound)
Drawings showing the proposed bus shelters can be viewed in the TTS reception at South Hill or online at www.gov.je/consult. Anyone wishing to comment on the schemes can do so by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing to Transport and Technical Services by 14th February 2014.
