More disruption as traffic lights work starts

Work on the second phase of a traffic light replacement scheme in Beverley gets underway today, August 12, with the lights at the New Walkergate and Manor Road junction with Norwood and Hengate being replaced.

The operation is expected to last two weeks and during this time temporary, four-way, traffic lights will be in place as well as a temporary pedestrian crossing. 

This is the second phase of a £140,000 upgrade, which sees the introduction of new energy-saving lights and smart technology to improve the way the junctions work. The first phase was completed in July and saw the replacement of the traffic lights at the nearby New Walkergate, Morton Lane and Walkergate junction. 

Paul Tripp, head of streetscene services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, told Beverley FM: “There will be some disruption to traffic during this work because we will need to use four-way temporary traffic lights, so we would like to thank motorists and pedestrians in advance for their patience while this essential work is complete.”
