Plans To Lower Speed Limits On 50 Roads

Speed limits could be lowered on around 50 roads in St John, St Mary and Trinity.

A public consultation has opened today (12 June) and is inviting feedback on the changes until the end 28 July.

The routes include the main road through St John's Village being cut from 30 to 20mph.

50 roads would be affected in total, including La Route d’Ebenezer, La Route des Issues, and La Route du Nord.

It's the latest government speed review, following the reductions in St Clement in March.

Infrastructure Minister Deputy Tom Binet says limits need to be 'appropriate for each area'.

“We’re aware lowering limits isn’t always popular with motorists, but changing limits really can make things safer for cyclists and pedestrians. It’s important we listen to the concerns of residents on some of the smaller parish roads, and this anonymous survey will help make sure we get this right.”

The consultation can be completed online or by picking up a paper version from the relevant Parish Hall.

The roads being consulted upon are:

La Rue D’Asplet La Rue ès Picots, Le Grand Clos, La Rue des Croix, La Route de la Trinité, La Rue Guerdain, La Rue de la Petite Falaise, La Route d’Ebenezer, La Route du Nord, La Route du Mont Mado, La Route des Issues, La Route de la Mare Ballam, La Route de St Jean, La Rue de L’Etocquet, Les Clicquards, Le Pre des Chenes, Les Tuiles, Le Clos de L’École, La Route du Temple, La Rue de la Ville Guyon, Melbourne Park, Mont Mado Lane, North View, La Rue de Sorel, Les Charrières de Bonne Nuit, La Rue des Servais, La Rue des St Germains, La Verte Rue, La Rue de la Rosière, Le Petit Clos, Le Clos de l’Arsenal, La Rue du Rondin, La Rue de la Frontière, La Grande Rue, La Rue es Viberts, La Rue du Douet, Le Chemin des Hougues, La Chève Rue, La Rue à Georges, La Rue ès Boeufs, La Rue Bechervaise, Le Mont Remon, La Rue du Couvent, and Le Jardin du Couvent.
