One month into the new traffic-turnaround that has been implemented in Road Town, afternoon traffic on Waterfront Drive was a sign of congestion on Monday, July 13.
When BVI News visited the vicinity some minutes after 1 pm, there was a vehicle build-up from the intersection of Nibbs Street and Waterfront Drive; down to the roundabout by Sol Gas Station.
Traffic appeared to be slow-moving at the time.
From the looks of things, the flow of traffic became restricted as vehicles ventured through the said roundabout.
Under the new turnaround, traffic on Waterfront Drive now moves in one direction from the traffic lights heading easterly to the roundabout. Vehicles are no longer allowed to go westerly on to that thoroughfare.
On DeCastro Street — which is the road from Bobby’s Supermarket to Republic Bank — traffic also now goes in one direction onto Positive Action Drive heading west.
Government has also implemented a Park & Ride free shuttle service to accompany the change.
