High Street Exchange Street
What? Junction realignment and improving existing pedestrian crossing facilities.
When? To be confirmed, but works are likely to commence autumn 2018 and be completed by winter 2018.
Why? The current junction priority favours vehicles on the one-way system which causes long delays on High Street.
Should traffic signals be installed it would allow a fairer and more even flow of traffic between Connaught Road and High Street which would reduce queuing on High Street. In addition traffic signals would allow for pedestrian crossings to be created, improving safety for people crossing the roads.
