Social Sciences - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / Proposal to allow right turn on red (RTOR), Island of Montreal
French term or phrase: conflictuel (here)
This is a letter from several mayors to the Quebec Minister of Transportation asking that vehicles be allowed to make a right turn on a red light on the Island of Montreal, as is permitted elsewhere in the province. The writer does allow that RTOR should be prohibited "près des hôpitaux, des écoles et des résidences pour personnes âgées tout comme aux endroits où les aménagements routiers seront conflictuels."

Does this mean ...places where roadwork and RTOR would not be compatible?

road layout is incompatible
(or unsuitable)

does aménagement not just mean the road layout, in this case?
