Motorists seeking access to University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI) and the Truman Bodden Sports Complex (TBSC) from Walkers Road can look forward to a significantly shorter journey, now that phase one of the construction of a connector road is underway.       A quarter-mile in length, the road begins in the vicinity of Burger […]

What happened to the trees?

What happened to the trees?

All the trees at the roundabout in front of King’s Sports Centre and First Assembly of God are being cut down! And for what purpose, as hot as Cayman is? Auntie’s answer: While I definitely do not like to see any trees cut down, there is no need to panic. An official with the National […]

Why don’t we have traffic lights at crosswalks?

Why don’t we have traffic lights at crosswalks?

Why didn’t the NRA put walk/don’t walk pedestrian crossings to stop the situation that one pedestrian crosses, gets to the other side, another one starts to cross… cars still waiting… that pedestrian crosses then two more decide they want to cross, etc. It would make much more sense to have this synched so traffic moves […]

Traffic lights need buttons for pedestrians

Traffic lights need buttons for pedestrians

Why is it that the pedestrian crossings in central George Town have not been outfitted with the button-operated lights as has been done for other relatively new crossings? These GT crossings are the most used and these lights would certainly benefit pedestrians and drivers (providing they have a delay between activations) if/when installed. Then the […]

Used cars an unsightly part of West Bay Road

Used cars an unsightly part of West Bay Road

I know this question has come up before, but why can’t the National Roads Authority properly police the parking of “For Sale” vehicles opposite Queen’s Court? Every day I pass this collection of cars and realtors’ “For Sale” signs assembled alongside one of Cayman’s most prominent tourist roadways. What a mess.

If a utility company digs up a government asphalt residential road to lay piping, are you able to find out what the rules are regarding how they are required to leave the road? Our residential road was dug up all down one side, the company did not replace/cover the trench in the same asphalt but a […]

(CNS Local Life): A partnership between the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) and the National Roads Authority (NRA) to enhance public safety has improved road markings and traffic signs on the waterfront and in central George Town.

The rules for merging in traffic

The rules for merging in traffic

| 28/05/2018 | 6 Comments

I feel I should know the answer to this, but I don’t. With several roads now with merge lanes it’s probably worth asking. Do the cars in the merging, lesser lane, give way to the main lane, or has it changed like the UK did to “zipper” merging (like a zip) where each car should […]

Well, Auntie, since the National Roads Authority is winning all kinds of Ask Auntie accolades and awards, how about asking them to do a better job on road signage, or perhaps ask them about the lack thereof? For those of us who have been around a while and know our way around it’s not an […]

Praise for Crewe Road roundabout

Praise for Crewe Road roundabout

Who, or what government department, was responsible for designing the new roundabout at the beginning of Crewe Road by the airport? I ask because it is working so well, solving a serious problem at a notorious black spot for traffic accidents. I think the designers should get public recognition. Auntie’s answer: The roundabout is the […]
