Pelican Crossing By Jumper’s Building To Be Completed By The End Of The Week

The Government has announced that new infrastructure and civil works to reinstate the existing pelican crossing by Jumper’s Building at Rosia Road are now complete and the installation of a new set of pelican crossing equipment at this location is planned to be completed by the end of this week.

A statement from the Government follows below:

The existing pelican crossing was beyond economical repair and the  supporting posts of the light heads were in danger of collapsing due to high level of corrosion. The  proposed pelican crossing will be an upgrade to what was present and will consist of new  countdown timers in line with recommendations contained within the Sustainable, Traffic,  Transport and Parking Plan (STTPP).  

The equipment necessary for the pelican crossing suffered setbacks in delivery due to the ongoing  pandemic so works to install them were unfortunately delayed, which was beyond the  Government’s control.
