During this period the road will remain open to pedestrians.

Cllr Lynne Stagg, cabinet member for traffic and transportation, said. ‘New lights, more time for pedestrians to cross, more space and the removal of the central reserve next to the railway line will result in a much improved and safer crossing.’
