New traffic calming measures at Havre des Pas

03 August 2021

A series of pedestrian courtesy crossings (raised tables) will be put in place in Havre des Pas early next year to make it easier for pedestrians to cross safely and to slow traffic.


A courtesy crossing is a raised crossing in the road which provides pedestrians with a safer place to cross, although traffic is not obliged to stop.


The plans follow a consultation last year that looked at the ways Havre des Pas could be improved. Highway measures, such as introducing a 20mph speed limit, which has since been implemented, and improving pedestrian crossings were proposed.


A community artist could be asked to decorate the crossings with artwork to reflect the character, history, and culture of the area.


Islanders are being asked to provide feedback on the proposed Havre des Pas traffic calming project by emailing


Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Kevin Lewis, said: "The Government of Jersey Public Realm and Movement Strategy has confirmed the need to improve the pedestrian facilities along this road.


"The raised tables will help reinforce the 20mph speed limit and will form a safer and more level crossing for pedestrians from pavement to pavement.


"There's potentially an opportunity to engage a local artist to design the surface of the crossings which could in turn further strengthen the unique sense of place in Havre des Pas. I encourage Islanders that have any feedback on the project to email"
