WORK to improve traffic in Gosport has started.
Hampshire County Council has begun the £560,000 work at The Crossways and Lees Lane North junction.
Manually operated four-way temporary traffic signs will be used over the period at peak times.
As reported, new traffic lights at the junction will be responsive to traffic flow.
And a new bus lane, in Lees Lane North, will reduce journey times for the First Bus Eclipse E1 service.
A new bus stop at Lees Lane North will have 24-hour travel information and security equipment.
The existing bus stop at The Crossways and Forton Road will be improved to a similar specification.
Funding has come from Department for Transport Better Bus Area Fund.
Councillor Sean Woodward is executive member for transport at the county council.
He said: ‘This is a very welcome boost for bus passengers and motorists using these busy routes and will improve public transport accessibility in and out of Gosport.’
