Traffic detours will be in place at the Inner Harbour area from this weekend due to flood prevention works, the Macau Daily Times reports.

Construction will be centred around the intersection between Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro (often referred to by its Cantonese name of San Ma Lo) and the Inner Harbour. The work is expected to last for five months.

Two lanes of traffic between southern Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro and Rua das Lorchas will be suspended in the Barra direction. Barra-bound traffic will be diverted into one of the remaining two lanes, halving the road’s capacity.

Use of the pedestrian crossing where Rua do Visconde Paço de Arcos intersects with Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro will also be suspended.

People are asked to leave cars at home and use public transport for trips around the area over the coming months to ease traffic pressures.

However, buses will be affected, too. Routes 8A, 18A, 18B, 19 and 26 will not stop at the Ponte 16 bus stop, for example.
