Four-way stops on R72 create confusion pending traffic lights going live

The four-way stops that were introduced on the R72 through Port Alfred pending the new traffic lights going live this evening created some confusion today, with numerous motorists ignoring the stop signs on Southwell Road at the intersection with Atherstone Road. Accidents were only averted by traffic waiting on Atherstone Road giving way to cars and trucks that did not stop on Southwell Road. The lights at least two of the new sets of traffic lights went live tonight – at the Atherstone Road intersection and the Gluckman Road intersection. The lights at the Pascoe Crescent intersection were not on. The lights are part of the R72 upgrade by Sanral.
