St John's road trial scheme

About the scheme

The Minister for Infrastructure and the St Helier Roads Committee have approved a 3 month trial to take place in the Spring of 2024 on St John’s Road to make the area safer for residents and pedestrians.

The lower part of St John's Road between Parade Road and Cheapside will become one-way northbound only (away from Cheapside), with bollards creating more space on the narrowest section of the road for pedestrians.

Motorists heading towards town along St John's Road will be directed to use Tower Road and Westmount, with St John's Road being prioritised for local access. Local traffic heading to town from St John's Road will be able to use Parade Road.

Benefits of the trial scheme

The St John's road trial scheme intends to:

  • reprioritise the streets to make them safer and more user friendly for pedestrians
  • benefit local residents accessing their homes
  • encourage people to use more sustainable forms of travel
  • create an attractive environment that enhances local amenity

If the trial scheme is successful then it will be considered for permanent implementation.
