Lima looking to ease traffic with reordering of Javier Prado

0

The Peruvian capital hopes to see improvements to its traffic, after new changes to Javier Prado Ave, one of the city’s main roads, take place on April 2. 

According to Peru21, starting this Tuesday public and private transportation will no longer be able to turn left on Camino Real, Petit Thouars, Paseo Parodi, and Rivera Navarrete.

Those who choose to disobey the new flow of traffic will receive a 440 soles fine, the daily said.

According to Gabriela Guzman, head of the municipality’s social environmental agency, the new reordering aims to tackle the large amount of taxis and private cars that turn left on these roads, and block the flow of traffic.

“In rush hour the displacement of cars can take up to 15 minutes in this stretch of the road, with the vehicular reordering, this could be reduced to 6 minutes,” she said.

Maria Jara, head of the city’s urban transportation agency, said private bus lines had been informed about the change to their routes, and would now have to use alternate roads.
