Africa-Press – Botswana. The Ministry of Transport and Public Works has announced that a new traffic management plan will take effects at the Rainbow intersection from tomorrow.
According to a press statement from the ministry, the plan entails the use of the current intersection as a four-way traffic signalised set up and temporary traffic signals to control traffic travelling straight along the KT Motsete Drive “Western Bypass” to continue straight as per the current set up.
Meanwhile, traffic turning right from KT Motsete Drive to Kudumatse Drive (Gabane-Nokia) will be controlled by temporary traffic lights. In additioan the traffic along Kudumatse Drive will pass under the bridge and will be controlled by temporary traffic lights that will provide straight through and right turn access through the intersection.
Left turning traffic from both KT Motsete Drive and Kudumatse Drive will continue to use the slip roads as per the current set up and traffic will be guided by signage and road markings at the intersection.
The ministry further says traffic police officers will also be on site to monitor traffic and allow motorists to adjust. This development is part of the Design, Build and Transfer of the Three Graded Separated Intersections at the Intersections of K.T. Motsete Drive “Western Bypass” with Lobatse Road, Willie Seboni Road and Kudumatse Drive project.
