About National Roads Authority
The National Roads Authority (NRA) was created to administer, manage, control, develop and maintain the Islands's public roads and related facilities, such as signals, stormwater facilities, roadway lighting, roadway directional signage, etc.
It performs the following: routine, periodic and emergency public road maintenance; collects information on the performance of the existing transportation system; forecasts future traffic demand; and identifies possible solutions to anticipated issues in system performance and deficiencies.
The NRA currently has various road projects underway including:
- the Linford Pierson Highway expansion
- East West arterial construction
- the Airport Connector Road
- the Crewe Road and Hurley Merren Boulevard widening
- Godfrey Nixon Way extension
In 2020 the NRA painted 'sharrow's on the roads to help improve cyclist safety. See the info graphic below to find out more about the rights of cyclists on the roads.
