为了改善交通流,减少拥堵,澳洲颁布了一项新的P转角(P-turn)道路交通规则。

现在,墨尔本东北区Collingwood的Hoddle St和Johnston St交叉路口开始实施新交规。

周一早上6点,VicRoads Streamlining Hoddle Street项目的部分路段实行了P转角,并推出新的停车限制和超速道路(clearways)。

P转角的意思是,想要从Hoddle St向右转的司机需要往交叉路口直行,然后做U型转弯,再左转进入Johnston St。

想从Johnston St右转的司机得先左转,然后U型转弯,再穿过交叉路口。

维州道路交通局的克里斯-米勒(Chris Miller)在接受3AW采访时称,周一早上的实行进展顺利。

“我从未见过Hoddle St的车流如此顺畅,”米勒称。“以前右车道的司机想要右转进入Johnston(St)时都要排队。”

“他们总是会堵在右边的车道上,使Hoddle St变成一个车道。”

在实施P转角之前,想要右转的司机总是会被困在长长的车队中,阻碍想要直行穿过交叉路口的车流。

据悉,Hoddle St和Swan St的交叉路口也会实行P转角交规。
