New pedestrian crossing for Beaumont Street, Gainsborough

5 October 2017

The crossing will be fitted with puffin-type equipment and will be linked to the traffic signals at the Beaumont Street / Spring Gardens junction.


Fitted with puffin-type equipment

The crossing will have above ground detectors that will detect when people are using it. These also ensure that they have time to cross safely and that traffic isn’t queuing needlessly. 

Work to install a crossing between the new Lidl supermarket and Marshall’s Yard will begin on Sunday 22 October.

The project is expected to take around four weeks, and will involve lane closures, stop/go boards and three-way temporary traffic lights as and when required.

Tim Clark, Principal Engineer – Traffic Signals, said:

“This type of crossing is safer for pedestrians, making sure that they have time to cross but without causing unnecessary delays to traffic.

“We’d advise motorists to allow additional time for their journeys while the work is taking place, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
