More speed humps ahead

The Department of Public Works is looking to install new speed humps outside of two Pembroke schools.

According to official notices in The Royal Gazette, speed humps will be installed on crosswalks near the West Pembroke Primary and Northlands Primary schools.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Public Works said: “Speed humps are to be installed on North Shore Road in Pembroke near West Pembroke Primary and a second on Berkeley Road, Pembroke by Northlands Primary.

“These speed humps will be installed at the cross walks adjacent to the schools to reduce motorists' approach speed and improve safety for those crossing the road.”

He also said that the speed humps are a part of a wider initiative to improve safety for students and other pedestrians in school areas and at cross walks across the Island.

Both speed humps were scheduled to be installed late last week, but work was set back due to the heavy rain. The spokesman said it is now expected work will begin this week.
