Avenida do Coronel Mesquita will be converted to three vehicular lanes later this week, the Transport Bureau (DSAT) has announced.
The project to gradually change more sections of the busy avenue from two to three vehicular lanes broke ground last January.
The 900-metre-long single-way thoroughfare in the northern peninsula runs from the municipal kennels at the Avenida do Almirante Lacerda junction to the Hoi Fu Garden residential estate at the Avenida de Sidónio Pais junction.
Additionally, the zebra crossings on two more junctions in Avenida do Coronel Mesquita will be replaced by traffic light-controlled crossings from Thursday, namely the Rua da Madre Terezina junction and the Rua do Padre João Clímaco junction.
Zebra crossings on a number of junctions in Avenida do Coronel Mesquita have gradually been replaced by traffic light-controlled crossings since 2020.
The thoroughfare is intensively used by schoolchildren due to the neighbourhood’s sizable number of schools, The Macau Post Daily reported.
