Works to upgrade the traffic signals at the Wimborne Road junction with Dorchester Road and Vicarage Road, are due to finish tomorrow, 20 June.
The works involved the replacement of the old signals which had come to the end of their working life and were becoming unreliable.
The upgraded signals, which cost £100,000, will provide a number of additional benefits to road users including:
• being more responsive to fluctuation in traffic flows throughout the day
• improved synchronisation with the signals at the New Inn
• enhanced benefits for cyclists and improved facilities for pedestrians with a new pedestrian facility to cross Vicarage Road
Councillor Ian Potter, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Transportation, Borough of Poole, said: “This is a very busy junction so we are really pleased that all road users will be able to benefit from the improvements made. We would like to thank local residents and road users for their understanding while these works were carried out.”
Councillor Peter Adams, Ward Member for Oakdale, Borough of Poole, said: “I am delighted that after so many years this junction has been improved providing increased safety and accessibility. It will make a real difference to those people who use this junction on a regular basis.”
