What date was the road layout changed at St Clements road and la Route du Fort?
There were major works done about 10 years ago. One of the main differences was than someone traveling towards the tunnel could no longer turn left onto St Clements road, I think the traffic lights were also changed.
Since that day up to now how many road collisions have there been?
How many collisions were there for the same period of time pre road changes
In March 2013, to support the “Safer Travel To School” initiative for St Luke’s School, a Ministerial Decision by the Infrastructure Minister was made to improve pedestrian facilities within the existing signalled junction on the southern arm of St Clements Road.
In order to achieve this, vehicles were prohibited from turning left from Route du Fort eastern arm into St Clements Road southern arm. This was supported by a footway build out, a widening of the pedestrian island in the eastern arm of Route du Fort, and a realignment of the southern kerb line at the western arm of Route du Fort.
Signal phasing was also changed resulting in right turning lanes from Route du Fort eastern arm into St Clements Road operating in separate stages. Work was completed by the autumn of that year.
At the request of the police, further work was conducted in 2017 to change the phasing of the lights to reduce the potential for red light running and collisions.
