Broad Street / Parks Road Junction
What happens without the traffic lights?
9 January 2017
The traffic lights at the four-way junction of Broad Street, Parks Road, Holywell Street and Catte Street – probably best known as “outside the King’s Arms” – have been out of action for several months. It seems that the equipment is old and obsolete. Given that the County has plans to remodel Broad Street when finances allow they have decided it’s not worth replacing or repairing the lights.
Instead they propose to do a short-term surface treatment. The design is for “a raised junction table (75mm height above existing carriageway level) with ramps of 1:12 gradient between the junction table and the existing carriageway level”.
They are consulting on the proposal until 3 February. These links will take you to more detailed information.
