Filter-in-turn in Beaumont, Jersey - Coppermine - 18272.jpg
Filter-in-turn in Beaumont, Jersey

This is a filter-in-turn junction Beaumont, St Peter a few kilometres west of St.Helier, where the A1 and A12 merge into the A1. This is basically a 'free-for-all' roundabout where each person must take their turn to "filter" through the junction but at least Jersey drivers seem more patient unlike their UK cousins!

Direction signage in St.Helier, Jersey - Coppermine - 18274.jpg
Direction signage in St.Helier, Jersey

Example of direction signage on the A17 road in St.Helier. This road will become the A3 a bit further down as it heads to the east, through suburbs to the coast and the village of Gorey. It is quite interesting to note that the "A" road signs here are not green, despite this being on the main route from the East to the West of the island.

A2 Victoria Avenue, St.Helier Jersey - Coppermine - 18277.jpg
A2 / Victoria Avenue, St Lawrence, Jersey

The western end of the dual carriageway the A2, in the parish of St Lawrence. This area is known as Bel Royal. Before this junction there is a "Filter in Turn" (where the D2 road becomes D1), however it largely operates as a Merge in Turn found elsewhere. At the end of this road there is an interesting junction. Traffic must turn left coming off the Avenue despite the junction being a crossroads (to stop users going through the built up areas on the A1, which become congested with traffic from the North of the island).

A2 Victoria Avenue in St.Helier Jersey

The A2 Victoria Avenue is Jersey's only dual carriageway road. This is looking eastbound towards St.Helier town centre, just past the First Tower junction with the A1. This is the oldest part of the road, and has lay-by parking along its length (only accessible to westbound traffic however).

A1 Esplanade, St Helier Jersey - Coppermine - 18282.jpg
A1 Esplanade, St Helier Jersey

The lower part of the Esplanade (hidden from view on the right) was by-passed by a new relief road years ago. The A1 now on the relief road on the left, after emerging from the underpass, curves round joining the upper part of the Esplanade seen right ahead.

The A1 road leading towards the fishing village of St.Aubin. This is an primary A route in Jersey standards which it looks more like a B road!

St.Helier Tunnel, St.Helier Jersey - Coppermine - 18283.jpg
St.Helier Tunnel, St.Helier Jersey

The A17 road goes right through a tunnel under the rocky terrain of Fort Regent saving drivers from the nightmare of going up and down steep hills! It also prevents traffic from needing to fo through the centre of town (allowing many roads to be pedestrianised).

Mulcaster Street, St.Helier Jersey

Mulcaster Street, at the heart of St.Helier town centre, shows how narrow the street is even a Pelican crossing is provided instead of a Zebra meaning it is very busy during peak hours.

"Advanced" pelican crossing, St.Brelade, Jersey - Coppermine - 18268.jpg
'Advanced' pelican crossing, St.Brelade, Jersey

For some strange reason, this pelican crossing is fitted with on-crossing detectors which are supposed to be only for Puffin and Toucan crossings! The DfT jobsworths will have a field day if this is found on their patch! In Jersey, there tends not to be many Puffin or Toucan crossings however. Signal head: Siemens Helios CLS LED Mk2

Traffic lights in St.Brelade, Jersey

These are the only traffic lights in the village of St.Brelade and probably the only ones outside St.Helier. These older Mellor types could be likely get replaced pretty soon as these are showing their age.

Edit: There are in fact some signals in St Saviour, St Lawrence and St Clement

Strange NSL sign with 30mph limit, Beaumont Jersey - Coppermine - 18291.jpg
Strange NSL sign with 30mph limit, Beaumont Jersey

This seems quite odd to a non-Jersey resident which I think this means NSL with maximum 30mph limit applied. This does not seem to make sense as NSL in Jersey is 40mph instead of the UK's 60mph so shouldn't a normal 30mph sign be used instead?

Edit to explain: This sign means 40mph limit. The 30 indicates that the 30 limit has ended/been cancelled, but that on the next road, although NSL applies, it is not considered safe to travel at it due to it being a narrow lane. (This is normally found on side roads)

Strange speed limit sign, St.Brelade Jersey - Coppermine - 18292.jpg
Strange speed limit sign, St.Brelade Jersey

I have no idea what this sign means however I would understand if a normal 20mph sign is used instead as this is a residential neighbourhood!

Edit for explanation: This means that the 20mph limit is cancelled and the NSL limit once again applies. However some of these signs are outdated since the road they adjoin is now a 30mph limit.

A1 "Route de la Liberation" underpass, St.Helier Jersey - Coppermine - 18284.jpg
A1 'Route de la Liberation' underpass, St.Helier Jersey

The Route de la Liberation itself is a relief road built to by-pass the southern Esplanade as it heads into town. But it seems unable to stop the usual rush hour jams! The relief road eventually joins up with the northern Esplanade beyond. The roundabout interchange provides easy access to the harbour for the ferry and the boat marina. The traffic on the eastbound heads towards the Tunnel where D3 becomes S2

The Esplanade becomes Victoria Avenue in St.Helier, Jersey

The A1 Esplanade becomes the A2 Victoria Avenue straight ahead as the A1 turns off to the right at this junction. There used to be a roundabout at this junction. The "right phase" of this junction is fairly useless, since most traffic wishing to use it can access the same routes via the A1.

Yellow Give Way markings, Georgetown, St.Helier Jersey - Coppermine - 18286.jpg
Yellow Give Way markings, Georgetown, St.Helier Jersey

Give Way markings in Jersey are usually painted in yellow instead of white probably to mark the Jersey government's determination to prove the island is not part of the UK officially. It is in fact to do with the fact that give way lines in Jersey are marked by a yellow transverse line.

A rogue non-British style direction sign, St.Helier Jersey

Found this non-British style direction signage which would be frowned upon in our DfT headquarters. The sign looks a bit Singaporean to me!

I am unsure if this is normal for UK standards because the kerbs on this traffic island got white stripes which I haven't seen this anywhere in the UK.

Wrong style of direction signage, St.Brelade Jersey - Coppermine - 18294.jpg
Wrong style of direction signage, St.Brelade Jersey

It appears the Jersey government had made a blunder on this one years ago - this road is the B36 which this sign is given the primary A road treatment using green and yellow colours which a white and black version should be used!

The numbers '36' have faded away leaving just 'B' behind so let's hope when they get to replace this sign in time they will put up a proper B road sign!

Update: They have not. The current sign is also in green. In fact all the signs along this road seem to be green (colour system is not strongly applied on the island)

Direction signage, Georgetown, St.Helier Jersey - Coppermine - 18288.jpg
Direction signage, Georgetown, St Saviour, Jersey

Example of direction signage in St Saviour. The stuff on the road sign has clearly been stuffed in in an effort to cut corners (no DfT oversight in action)

Edit: The sign has thankfully since been replaced with a much more spaced out and clearer sign.

Example of page taken from the Jersey Highway Code

The JHC is based on the British version with slight modifications. Does anyone notice anything missing on this page? The funny thing is motorway signals are displayed here as Jersey doesn't have motorways but would help Jersey residents whenever they get to drive in the UK mainland. This material belongs to the States of Jersey government

No island regulation requires speed limits to be posted on both sides of the road, so they are often not on non-main roads to cut costs. In fact National Speed Limit signs are only ever posted on one side of the road. Here you can also see the bus stop marking in Jersey are white and often not in boxes.
JE SJ CYCLES
These blue cycle signs are found dotted around the island to indicate cyclists of the island's national cycle network. In the background you can see an interesting variant of the NSL sign with a 30 in it. This indicates a 40mph limit when exiting a 30mph limit, but that the road is narrow so should not necessarily be taken at the speed limit.
JE SJ COACH - Flickr - 50246142081.jpg
This (in need of replacement) sign indicates the restriction of 'No Chars-a-Banc' which translates to no buses or coaches
JE SJ GREEN - Flickr - 50245513678.jpg
In Jersey, Green Lanes are lanes designated by the parish which have a 15 mph speed limit and where priority is afforded to pedestrians, cyclists and equestrians.
JE SP FILTER - Flickr - 50246394777.jpg
The junction of A1 and A12 in St Peter. The filter in turn means that traffic must take it in turns to go round the roundabout rather than the normal give way to the right rule.

JE SH B79 - Flickr - 50246383547.jpg
A roundabout sign on B79, St Helier with a patch over one direction of the sign due to a road being made one-way (as explained by the sign further along)
JE SB A13 - Flickr - 50246379587.jpg
In Jersey, the default speed limit on all roads (regardless of street lighting) is 40 mph. Therefore repeater signs are required (although not always used!) on roads with a lower limit (including urban street lit roads).
JE SB B36 - Flickr - 50245531873.jpg
A bus shelter and traffic direction sign on the B36 in St Brelade, Jersey. The sign has been updated since the earlier photo, but it's rather interesting to see a green-signed B route.
JE SB B36 2 - Flickr - 50246377312.jpg
What makes the green signage for the B36 even more confusing is the inconsistency along the road. Sometimes it is signed green and other times white.
