Northbound Lanes of Esterley Tibbetts Highway Temporarily Re-Opened

In order to assist with the flow of traffic during the evening rush hour, the northbound lanes of the Esterley Tibbetts Highway, between the AL Thompsons roundabout and Camana Bay, will be temporarily reopened between 4:00PM and 6:30PM today. The southbound lanes will remain closed. Due to ongoing visibility issues caused by smoke coming from the George Town landfill fire, the speed limit in this area will be reduced to 30MPH.

Marked police vehicles will also be stationed at both ends of this section of the Esterley Tibbetts (AL Thompsons roundabout and Lawrence Boulevard). Motorists choosing to travel via the Esterley Tibbetts during this time are advised to exercise caution, obey all instructions from traffic officers, and observe the adjusted speed limit. In addition, your vehicle’s windows should be kept closed and the air system set to recirculate internal air, in order to avoid unnecessary exposure to smoke fumes.

Because the southbound lanes will remain closed, traffic congestion is still expected. As such, the RCIPS is asking the public to avoid all non-essential travel on Esterley Tibbetts and West Bay Road, in both directions, during the evening rush hour
