King Street corridor

Since the King Street signals were switched on it has not been working as efficiently as it could do to clear congestion. This is because we could not introduce the SCOOT system, which is the element that links the junctions, when the signals were first switched on.

The SCOOT system will be in place by the end of this week so that next week we can start to manage traffic flows along the corridor and reduce some of the congestion that has been forming there.

We will continue to keep a close eye on the network and make improvements where necessary to ensure the system is working as efficiently as possible.

    Although traffic along The Esplanade from St Johns church to Jubilee clock has moved more swiftly than before the new system, there has been total gridlock on occasions between Kings Statue and Jubilee Clock. in addition pedestrian crossing lights have not worked in coordination with junction lights.

    I usually avoid town like the plague, but had to go in for something urgent yesterday but what a joke! Friday afternoon but no excuse, there was complete gridlock, traffic was queued both ways on the seafront, even coming back on itself round Ally Gardens. I can’s see that a bit off traffic light phasing will cure it. Good luck.

    The tailbacks from the jubilee clock are horendous.
    When will scoot help? The seafront jams are far more worse than they ever were before.

      Now that SCOOT is in place we can start to manage the corridor and balance the traffic demand against the flow that is available. Work is now being carried out to monitor and manage the network so improvements should be seen shortly.
