In order to strengthen the management of the coach pick-up and drop-off services in the environs of the Ruins of St. Paul's, the Macao SAR Transport Bureau (DSAT) has introduced new traffic arrangements for the Rua D. Belchior Carneiro area.
These arrangements include: On Saturdays and Sundays, from 8:00am to 6:00pm, in the coach pick-up and drop-off area of Rua D. Belchior Carneiro, only the drop-off of passengers will be allowed. After visiting the Ruins of St. Paul's, visitors can walk from Rua D. Belchior Carneiro to the take-off and drop-off area in the underground parking area of Tap Siac for boarding (for heavy passenger cars).
At the same time, the sections of Rua de S. Roque between Calçada Central de S. Lázaro and Calçada da Igreja de S. Lázaro; Calçada da Igreja de S. Lázaro between Rua do Eduardo Marques and Rua do Volong, and a section of Rua do Volong between Calçada da Igreja de S. Lázaro and Estrada do Cemitério will be closed to traffic. In addition, a section of Rua Nova de S. Lázaro between Calçada Central de S. Lázaro and Calçada da Igreja de S. Lázaro will effectively become a pedestrian zone. Vehicles which enter the zone or continue to Rua do Pato can travel via Rua do Eduardo Marques and Rua de S. Miguel.
During the implementation of these measures, DSAT will provide information on its website (www.dsat.gov.mo/dsat/index.aspx) and Traffic Information Station mobile application regarding the number of parking spaces available in the coach pick-up and drop-off area of the underground car park of Tap Siac (intended for heavy passenger cars) thus enabling residents to plan their car trips and parking in advance.
