Long Sutton pedestrian crossing will be updated
Highways workers will be upgrading a town pedestrian crossing.
Lincolnshire County Council will be updating the current crossing in High Street, Long Sutton, from May 10.
The work is being undertaken as the current pedestrian signal equipment is coming to the end of its operational life.
The new pedestrian crossing will use more environmentally friendly, utilising extra-low voltage equipment which reduces the carbon footprint of the crossing due to reduced power consumption.
The works are due to begin on May 10 and be completed by May 27.
Two-way temporary lights will be in place during the scheme with pedestrian phases each side of the site area to assist pedestrians due to the narrow footpaths.
Richard Fenwick, head of highways asset and local management services, said: “This is the right time to make the changes to this equipment as it is coming to the natural end of its operational life.
“By undertaking these works we will not only have a crossing that is better for users but also for the environment.
“There will be some minor disruption during these works and we are minimising any inconvenience as much as possible whilst the changes are made.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone effected for their patience as we carry out the refurbishment.”
