Following complaints about excessive speeding in Rupert’s, the Highways Authority would like to remind all drivers in the Rupert’s area to adhere to the posted speed limits at all times. This includes from the junction at Side Path Road, Field Road and through to Rupert’s Beach.

 The Police will patrol Rupert’s area at busy times in order to provide an effective deterrent. Police have also been in contact with the Roads Section to see if consideration can be given for speed ramps. However, the Highways Authority has decided that speed ramps are not a solution as they will impede the movement of traffic when Rupert’s Wharf becomes operational.

Therefore, all motorists are asked to drive with due care and attention and within the posted speed limits when travelling in the Rupert’s area.
