New traffic lights for Boston junction

11 January 2018

New puffin-type traffic signals that will be able to detect when people are using it, giving people the time they need to cross safely, are to be installed at the junction of Norfolk Street / Witham Place.

Traffic signals

The existing signals have reached the end of their working life and will be replaced with new equipment, which is more energy efficient, emits less carbon dioxide and requires less maintenance, reducing running costs.Work will begin on Monday 29 January.

The crossing will be fitted with puffin-type equipment that will be able to detect when people are using it, giving people the time they need to cross safely. The system will also monitor traffic flow to help ensure that vehicles aren’t waiting needlessly. 

The project is expected to last for four weeks. Throughout, two-way temporary traffic lights will be in place, along with a temporary pedestrian crossing.

Witham Place will be closed between Norfolk Street and Union Place, with a signed diversion in place.

Tim Clark Principal Engineer – Traffic Signals, said:

“The new signals will be easier to maintain and much more energy efficient, making savings on annual running costs. And the puffin-style crossing will be safer for pedestrians, ensuring that they have time to cross without causing unnecessary delays to traffic.

“However, there will be some disruption while the work is carried out, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
