The traffic changes that started yesterday in the city center, with conditioned traffic in the area of Rua Fernão de Ornelas, Anadia and Largo do Phelps, create great confusion in the city, with motorists having great difficulty adapting to the new constraints. Motorists were waiting for more than 30 minutes to more around the congested area.
The Funchal-based public transport company “Horários do Funchal” has been publicly exposed to the congestion of car traffic, in Funchal, linking it to the closing of Rua do Carmo, in the context of the beginning of the fourth and final phase of the intervention that the Câmara do Funchal is developing in Rua Dr. Fernão de Ornelas.
The note from the bus company “HF” referred to difficulties “due to the difficult flow of traffic that has been verified, mainly, along Rua 5 de Outubro and Avenida do Mar and the Madeiran Communities, and pointed out delays in its service that were not acceptable. The company requested the intervention of the Camara do Funchal.
Today police are at various points in Funchal trying to keep the traffic moving, and helping reduce the delays that caused many problems yesterday. From FN
