The Spring Garden Road bus-only experiment is over for now

The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that the Spring Garden Road Bus-only Pilot will be paused on Friday, July 8 until further notice.  

The municipality intends to re-evaluate the current traffic control measures to recommend alternative methods to communicate and enforce the pilot initiative. 

Effective immediately, the following changes will be in effect: 

  • Spring Garden Road, from Queen to South Park streets, will be return to normal traffic operations; 
  • Vehicle access will be maintained on Spring Garden southbound on Birmingham Street, northbound on Dresden Row and northbound on Brenton Street; 
  • Clyde Street will remain two-way between South Park Street and Queen Street;
  • Stopping is not permitted along Spring Garden, from Queen to South Park streets, outside of the one designated loading area; and, 
  • Cyclists and pedestrians will continue to have access at all times. 

Regional Council approved this project in December 2021, as part of the Imagine Spring Garden Road streetscaping project.
