st denys rd traffic lights work starts

As reported, temporary lights, put in place after a collision on the junction, are said to have been significantly adding to motorists' journey times travelling down Cobden Avenue and over the bridge into town during rush hours.

A spokesperson for Balfour Beatty said: "I can confirm that from today [5/2/18] we will be on site carrying out the required repairs and that the new traffic signals should be commissioned by the end of the week. As we said on our Twitter feed it’s not a one size fits all with traffic signals unfortunately, each individual set has a chip which has to be specifically configured for the junction."

In response to some calls for a camera at the junction to deter red light jumping, Balfour Beatty said delivery and management of such cameras rests with the police.
