New traffic signals switched on

Posted: 25/01/2007 11:17:17

Worcestershire County Council has completed its replacement of traffic signal equipment on the busy A38 in Bromsgrove.

The work involved the complete replacement of 22-signal poles duct, cables, red amber, green, pedestrian heads and the controller at the junction of Bromsgrove Eastern bypass and Charford Road. Tactile paving has also been installed on all arms of the junctions.

As part of the refurbishment, an additional signal-controlled crossing has been provided over the slip road from the Stoke Road to the southbound A38 to aid pedestrians to cross. The cost of the work was approximately £100,000.

Nicky Luff, County Council TravelWise Officer, said: “The existing equipment dated back to1982. The old controller had become unreliable and difficult to maintain.

“The poles and signal heads were in need of replacement and facilities for the visually impaired did not meet today’s standards. Now they have been refurbished the improved reliability and efficiency will mean maintenance costs will be low.”
