A temporary multi-way signal will be controlling traffic at the junction of Queensthorpe Avenue and Henconner Lane in Bramley as a zebra crossing is installed, writes Keely Bannister.
Work starts on Wednesday 24th July and is due to last two weeks with the traffic control signal operating from 9.30am to 3.30pm, Monday to Friday.
The road will be closed on Saturday 10th August and Sunday 11th August from 8am until 6pm.
As previously reported in The Dispatch, the zebra crossing is being installed as a road safety measure with a council report stating:
“Pedestrians experience significant delays and difficulty when crossing due to a combination of reasons which include the close proximity of the side road junctions, on street parking and the vertical road alignment.
“On-site observations confirm that many motorists choose to drive between the residential estates at school pick up and drop off times as opposed to walking and having to cross the road.”
The school is Greenhill Primary School which is situated just off Henconner Lane on Gamble Hill Drive.
