Green Street in Jersey to become one-way

This post was originally published on this site

A temporary one-way system in St Helier is to become permanent.

The system was introduced during road works on Green Street earlier this year.

It was decided in the States Assembly in June that it should be implemented permanently.

The States’ Infrastructure Minister Deputy Kevin Lewis has now signed a Ministerial Decision confirming the change.

This Ministerial Decision meets the requirements of the States Assembly’s decision while minimising the adverse effects that it could have on cyclists, buses, the emergency services, and businesses. As Minister for Infrastructure I have to consider the wider impact of decision, this has been signed following consultation with the Parish of St Helier, the States of Jersey Fire Service and LibertyBus.

Motorists trying to access the Cedars, Maison La Corderie, and the Limes can do so from either Green Street roundabout or Havre des Pas, but they must exit northbound via the roundabout.

The shops at Clos des Pas can be accessed from the south, but motorists can exit either northbound towards the roundabout or southbound towards Havre des Pas.

Buses, bicycles, and emergency services vehicles will not be affected by the change and will be able to use Green Street southbound for the full length of the road.

The changes will take effect after the autumn school half term holidays, when the road will be closed for Jersey Electricity roadworks.
