Major Roadworks Start In Bournemouth

Today (16 January 2012) sees the start of a 4 week programme to replace the traffic lights at Cemetery Junction in Bournemouth.

The essential works, aimed at improving road safety will include an upgrade of the traffic lights to new, brighter Helios LED equipment and replacement of the traffic light poles. The control equipment will also be replaced and upgraded. 

By carrying out these works it will increase efficiency and responsiveness to traffic conditions as well as reduce the need for future maintenance in this area.

In order to enable the works the number of traffic lanes will be reduced with temporary 4-way traffic signals being required for two weeks, commencing on 28 January 2012.

Ian Kalra, Transportation Services Manager, said; "We have given careful consideration to the planning and coordination of this work, in order to keep disruption to a minimum.  We apologise in advance for the inevitable delays and disruption and recommend that as far as possible drivers plan to take alternative routes during this period."

Once the traffic signals have been switched back on, the contractor will move to the Wellington Road roundabout to make safety improvements. These works will be carried out at off-peak times in order to help reduce disruption. 

All works are anticipated to be completed by 26th February.
