The Town is currently working to improve safety measures at the Conception Bay Highway / Easons Road (Manuels River) crosswalk. This location has been evaluated by Harbourside Transportation Consultants, and the installation of a new, pedestrian activated traffic light crosswalk was recommended, and is currently under design. Once the project is designed, the Town is required to proceed to public tender. It is anticipated that traffic light poles will take 6-9 months for supply and delivery, once the project has been awarded.
As a temporary measure, the Town will be working to improve signage and road markings to increase area safety. This will include:
The safety of pedestrians and motorists is the responsibility of everyone. Please do your part to ensure this, and all areas of our Town can be enjoyed safely by all users. This project is being completed in coordination with the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure. As this roadway is under the Jurisdiction of this provincial department, all other concerns including speed limits, speed bumps, etc., should be directed to the provincial Department of Transportation and Infrastructure.
