Improvements ahead with traffic lights replacement for busy junction

New equipment will use LED technology, improving the signals’ reliability, reducing maintenance and saving energy

 

Release date: 16 January 2019

Obsolete traffic lights are to be replaced with new, more reliable and energy-efficient equipment at the West Common/Hickmans Lane crossroads in Lindfield.

The existing signals are becoming unreliable as there are limited spares available for any repairs. The new equipment will use LED technology, improving the signals’ reliability, reducing maintenance and saving energy.

Subject to factors such as poor weather, work will start on Monday, 28 January, with temporary traffic lights in place for the protection of the public and workforce.

A West Sussex Highways spokesperson said: “We would like to warn people that queues are likely on all approaches to the junction during the works and, if possible, motorists are advised to seek alternative routes, particularly during peak periods.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will do all we can to try to minimise this as much as possible.”

The work will take about six weeks and the scheme is estimated to cost £115,000.
