Making our Roads Safer

November 30, 2010 8:01 AM

Work has now started at the roundabout at the junction between the A1 and A69 to install traffic lights on slip roads. The traffic will now stop in sequence to allow pedestrians and people using mobility scooters to cross the road safely. Over the

last few years the amount of traffic on the roundabout has increased dramatically. People who want to go to Denton Burn have had great difficulty in crossing this major road junction safely. As part of the upgrade of major road junctions in the City, the improvement work is now being done. Lemington Councillor Lawrence Hunter said, "We have responded to residents concerns, and this work will help improve road safety for our area. I have been campaigning for several years to get this work done, so that the junction meets disabled access standards."

Road and Pavement Improvements

Despite the weather our programme to improve and replace worn out roads and pavements will carry on. By careful management of the City's finances your Lib Dem Council continue to keep their promises by allocating millions of pounds for road Repairs.

During November and early December work is planned to be carried out in the following streets and residents will be notified by letter: Maud Street - Replace road surface Centurion Road - Reconstruct Footpath Waverley Crescent - Resurface footpath Fernwood Road - Resurface Footpath More road and pavements are planned for next year - we'll keep you informed of progress.
