Residents from the Mouille Point and Green Point areas are encouraged to weigh in on the proposal to turn Bay Road in Mouille Point into a one-way road.
The Mouille Point Ratepayers Association (MPRA) recommended that converting Bay Road into a one-way would help to clear the traffic from the stadium after big events.
Among the reasons for this proposal, the City stated that traffic flow on Bay Road is circulating poorly due to formalised on-street parking and a one-way conversion would ease congestion. They added that residents that live on Bay Road find it difficult to access and exit their respective driveways due to traffic congestion.
The City’s Transport Network Development department said they received numerous requests for this section of Bay Road to be turned into a one-way to improve traffic flow. They said an investigation was then undertaken to determine the feasibility of the proposal.
“Upon investigation, the team established that residents have difficulty accessing and exiting their respective driveways along Bay Road and that by changing Bay Road into a one-way it will improve traffic circulation with the provision of formalised on-street parking. We ask that residents please consider the motivations for this proposal, and to submit their comments as soon as possible,” said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.
