Right turns again at Fordes Road junction

After more than three months, the junction improvement project at Fordes Road and Rendezvous Hill will be completed in a few days.

Minister of Transport, Works and Water Resources Ian Gooding-Edghill gave that promise on Saturday during a press briefing, as workmen completed the paving of the road. 

Both he and Member of Parliament for Christ Church West and former minister of Transport, Dr William Duguid, said the project was undertaken to alleviate traffic approaching the nearby Garfield Sobers Roundabout.

The work began on June 2 and $174 395 was spent to build a side walk, mill and pave and widen the road to form an additional lane.

And from Tuesday, when the road markings are expected to be completed, there will be a dedicated lane for motorists travelling from the Roundabout, which will be used to legally make the right turn on to Fordes Road at any time. 

During peak hours, making a right turn at that junction was not allowed for many years. (TG)
