Traffic Update June 2018

Traffic Lights

Manual operation of the traffic lights and a major change in their sequencing has seen traffic flow more freely since Monday (June 11). Two Councillors met with CBC ward Councillor Steve Dixon and the CBC Highways Officer to monitor the situation. Since the change to manual operation there has been less delays.Ideas from residents of temporary traffic orders to introduce “No Parking” on Dickens Boulevard was dismissed as these take six weeks to come into place. However, signs are being considered by CBC advising people coming from Hitchin Road to turn left into Bronte Avenue and go round and back down Dickens Boulevard to reach the school.
We will continue to monitor the situation, the current works are likely to last approximately three weeks. However further disrupton is inevitable as services need to be provided for the new school.
