Pinetown’s new traffic signalling system

nears completion in Pinetown residents are encouraged

system which has been installed.

Construction for Go!Durban is moving swiftly along in Pinetown with the new bus routes expected to be completed soon. Along with the new transport routes, a new traffic signalling system has been installed which the public is encouraged to familiarise themselves with.

THE GO!Durban Construction is well underway in Pinetown with the installation of a new traffic signalling system which will be fully operational when the dedicated bus lanes are up and running. With the new traffic signalling system in place, the Municipality urges members of the public to familiarise themselves on the operation of the system.

Carlos Esteves, Deputy Head of Road Systems Management Department at eThekwini Transport Authority said drivers and pedestrians must heed to the new signal systems and get use to them in time for when the new bus lane becomes operational. “The signals are simple to follow but are unfamiliar at the moment, so we call on everyone to proceed with caution and mindfulness,” he said. Explaining how the traffic signal worked, Esteves said: The sign above a traffic signal head indicates the movement controlled by that traffic signal face. When the green arrow signals are displayed only those particular movements are permitted. Whenever a red signal is displayed then the movement indicated by the sign above it is not permitted.

  • The traffic signal face with the green arrows pointing up and left indicates only straight through and left turn movements are permitted.
  • The traffic signal face with the green arrow pointing right indicates only right turn movements are permitted.
  • The larger traffic signal face, which has a sign above it reading Bus, will only be active when the bus operations start and these faces permit only the buses to proceed. For now these bus traffic signal faces are covered and/or are switched off - but are all inactive. “Going forward buses travelling in the dedicated bus lanes will be turning into and out of Anderson, Qashana Khuzwayo and Dinkelman Roads and crossing intersections along Josiah Gumede Avenue and Qashana Khuzwayo Road,” Esteves added.
