Plans to alter the road network around Trinity Church and parish hall – which left many of those living in the area "incensed" – won't be progressed until a review of speed limits has been completed.
The ‘Trinity Village Improvement Scheme’, which was proposed by the Infrastructure Department after public consultation, included creating a one-way system, introducing various traffic-calming measures and reducing maximum speeds.
However, Infrastructure Minister put the plans on hold over the summer after facing “quite an extraordinary level of discontent” at a community drop-in session at the parish hall in July.
He has now decided to extend that pause for a parallel review of speed limits in Trinity, St. John and St. Mary – and roads that link from those parishes into St. Lawrence and St. Peter – to be completed by his department.
Infrastructure is proposing that the speed limits on around 50 roads in those parishes are reduced.
The roads in Trinity under review are Rue d’Asplet, Rue ès Picots, Grand Clos, Rue des Croix, Route d’Ebenezer, Rue de la Petite Falaise, Route de la Trinité and Rue Guerdain.
Most of those roads also feature in the Village Improvement Scheme.
The speed limits' review went out for public consultation in June and it is understood that there were more than 1,000 responses by the deadline for submissions at the end of last month.
Transport officials at Infrastructure are now analysing the data before publishing an official response.
