Speed limit to drop across nearly 60 St. Helier roads


Nearly 60 St. Helier roads will have their speed limits dropped to 20mph or less, after a decision by the Roads Committee.

Despite opposition from the public, the Committee said it took the decision in respect of 59 roads to “improve road safety and will encourage cyclists to feel safer on roads with reduced speed limits.”

They also argued that a large proportion of objections “may have resulted from a misunderstanding" about plans for the Inner Road.

A statement released following the decision read: “The proposed new 20mph speed limit on St. Aubin’s Road will commence just before King George V Homes (where the central island is located) and will extend up to the junction of Rue de Trachy which is in the predominately built-up area. It is not proposed that the entire length of St. Aubin’s Road would be 20mph.

"Other arterial roads such as the Ring Road, the Esplanade, Queen's Road and Trinity Hill will remain at 30mph, while Victoria Avenue will remain at 40mph.”

Constable Simon Crowcroft also assured that he still supports motorsports, and that the decision “will not impact the annual Jersey International Motoring Festival’s Mount Bingham and Westmount Hill Climbs.”

The Parish will now be formally writing to the Infrastructure Minister to ask that the speed limit changes be implemented, while the Constable will be writing to the Chef de Police and the States of Jersey Police Chief “to request that enforcement of the speed limits is made a priority and enforcement levels increased.”

Brilliant, who thought this one through? Westmount is to be turned into the so called "Super Highway" but now it with a 20mph speed limit. I live overlooking Westmount and at no time have I ever thought the traffic is too fast.

Come on St Helier time to replace Crowcroft at next years election,he’s ruining St Helier..if he had his way the motor car would be banned from St Helier!

And so the nonsense, well intended nonsense, goes on. Countless people ignore the 30 mph limits already in force. Are we going to recruit hundreds of police, paid or honorary (good luck re rusting honorary police) to enforce these new speed limits? It’s OK changing and making laws, without law enforcement it is a pointless exercise.

“re rusting” in my post above should of course read “recruiting”.
