The new traffic lights that were recently installed outside The Combermere School by the Electronic Unit of the Ministry of the Ministry of Transport Works and Water Resources, will be activated next Monday to improve pedestrian safety within the school zone.
Until then, the lights will remain on flash mode, according to a statement released by the ministry.
“Motorists are asked to be aware of the new signalised crossings. When activated, pedestrians will be able to press the traffic signal’s button when they wish to cross the road . . . . The new controlled pedestrian traffic lights have been installed to improve pedestrian safety within the school zone, especially during peak school traffic hours,” it said.
Motorists and pedestrians have been urged to pay attention to the new lights and take the necessary precaution. (PR/MTWW)
