Crossing the road in Burgh le Marsh to be better for environment after roadwords
Lincolnshire County Council is planning to start the works at the High Street crossing on Thursday, September 21.
Depending on weather, it is expected it will take three weeks and two-way temporary signals and a temporary pedestrian crossing will be in place for the duration.
Coun Richard Davies, LCC executive member for highways, said: “It’s terrific news that we can deliver this improvement to the people of Burgh Le Marsh.
“The current signal equipment has reached the end of its operational life and spare parts are becoming difficult to source, so we’re making adjustments to bring the crossing up to current standards.
“The pedestrian crossing will become the near-side Puffin type and the new signal equipment will be extra-low voltage, which will reduce the carbon footprint due to the reduced power consumption.
“We will keep any disruption the minimum possible throughout these works and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone effected for their patience and understanding whilst we carry out this improvement for the area.”
DATES AND TIMES
The works will begin on Thursday, September 21 and have a planned end date of Wednesday, October 11, subject to suitable weather. The work will be carried out from 7am - 5pm, Monday to Friday.
There is no diversion route needed for these works.
