A one-way traffic trial is due to start in the Byron Arts and Industry Estate on 22 May.

A one-way traffic trial is due to start in the Byron Arts and Industrial Estate this weekend.

The Byron Shire Council says traffic on Centennial Circuit will be directed to flow in a clockwise direction from Brigantine Street to Wollongbar Street from Saturday, 22 May until November, having post-poned the trial in February to work out a solution for waste collection.

The trial is described by the council as a ‘quick-win action’ from the Byron Arts and Industry Estate Precinct Plan.

‘During the development of the Precinct Plan, residents, business owners and people who work in the estate highlighted a need for better traffic management,’ the council says on its website.

‘The increasing number of cars and trucks on Centennial Circuit mean it is very congested,’ the information continues, ‘we expect the trial will alleviate some of the traffic issues on the circuit by allowing better flow of traffic’.
