FINAL CHANGES TO THE SUVA CITY CENTRE PLAN TO BEGIN FROM NEXT MONDAY

26 November 2018

One way traffic management system will be put in place on Renwick Road in Suva from next week Monday 3rd December.

Confirming this, General Manager Central Aram Goes says the new layout on Renwick Road will consists of two lanes from Central Street with one-way traffic only.

He said these were part of the final changes to the Suva City Layout Plan to address the continual increase in traffic numbers, parking demands and the safety needs of the high pedestrian volumes in the City.

Further changes include;

  • Ellery Street intersection on to Renwick Road – traffic from Ellery Street will not be able to turn left onto Renwick, to exit onto Pratt Street, once the road works are completed.  Only right turn movement out of Ellery Street onto Renwick Road will be allowed for the two lanes.

 

  • Pier Street – entry will be from Thomson Street and exit entry will be from Thomson Street and exit into Renwick Road. So the travel direction on this short street will also be reversed to be turned the other way.

 

  • Thompson Street – additional through lane will be provided at the Edwards Street traffic lights in effort to further alleviate the congestion experienced at the Renwick Road junction.

“Significant improvements have been made to Suva City traffic congestion following the opening of the Stinson Parade Bridge, with additional lanes provided to improve flow through the inner City” Mr Goes said.

He said the changes to the Pratt Street intersection with Renwick Road is aimed to relieve traffic ques that have existed in the bottle-neck turn off from Thompson Street.

Meanwhile, roadworks on Renwick Road was completed yesterday, allowing a further week for the required traffic signage changes and road pavement markings to be painted to safely guide drivers through the new layout.
