Lower King Street one-way system implemented

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Motorists are being reminded that the one-way system on King Street has been implemented by the City of Hamilton this morning.

Barricades are in place and the road markings are complete, directing traffic to not turn down King Street from the Reid Street junction.

However, according to a Corporation of Hamilton spokeswoman, the city works superintendent has witnessed several motorists ignoring the barricades and turning down King Street.

“This is a traffic violation and the City is reminding drivers that they can be stopped by police and fined for such violations,” a statement said.

“The City of Hamilton is introducing this one-way system for safety reasons, as turning onto Front Street can be hazardous.

“We caution motorists who do not obey road traffic signs that they are putting themselves and others at risk and we encourage responsible driving.”
