INSIGHT: The bid to end "car dominance" in St. Helier

Thursday 24 June 2021

A huge overhaul of St. Helier's roads is coming if the island wants to hit its carbon targets... Express delves into a £130,000 report setting out how to end "car dominance" in Jersey's most populous parish by 2024.

Created by consultants Arup, the 'Stage 3 Report for its St. Helier Public Realm and Movement Strategy' touches on lower speed limits, new cycle routes, trees, creating more retail buzz, closing roads more often for public events and - you guessed it - tweaks to Broad Street as it sets out a strategy to make transport more eco-friendly around town.

Curb car use in St Helier? Best way is to build a giant hospital in the parish in an inaccessible place which will mean staff and patients will be driving there, no matter how many buses you put on. Then build a huge new road system in the west of St Helier to encourage this traffic, destroying the area in the process. That's the way to curb traffic in town.
