Chaguanas Mayor, Faaiq Mohammed has announced that the Borough’s proposed traffic plan has been scrapped.
The initial plan allowed traffic to enter the Endeavour overpass after exiting the Price Plaza Roundabout.
However, the mayor said while this was working it was causing a backlog of traffic along Rodney Road in the vicinity of the roundabout near ANSA Mc AL complex.
He said this was also causing a backlog of traffic along the Montrose Main Road that filters through Lange Park to access the highway.
He said the one way traffic in the area of Chan Ramlal Street has also been reverted.
Traffic would still be able to flow east along Eleanor Street and exit to the north and south on to the Southern Main Road and subsequently on to the Chaguanas Main Road if proceeding north after exiting Eleanor Street.
Traffic leaving Marc Street will continue to cross the Chaguanas Main Road and enter into Trial Street.
Mohammed said that in the New Year plans would be discussed for the Endeavour Overpass and the Chan Ramlal area.
Mohammed said the existing roadways cannot cope with the volume of traffic and more roads and lay-bys are needed to allow traffic to exit on to the highway.
Mohammed said an overpass was also needed in the Brentwood area to allow commuters from Edinburgh 500 access to both lanes of the highway.
