Latest technology used in Rustington traffic lights replacement scheme

Replacement work will improve the traffic signals’ reliability, reduce maintenance and save energy


Release date: 23 October 2018

Action is being taken to replace ageing traffic lights in Rustington village centre.

The equipment at The Street/Ash Lane/Broadmark Lane crossroads is obsolete. It will be replaced with the latest LED technology to improve the traffic signals’ reliability, reduce maintenance and save energy.

A West Sussex Highways spokesperson said: “The current lights are obsolete, so there are limited spares available to rectify any future faults and they will become increasingly unreliable.”

Replacement works starts on Monday, 5 November, and will take about six weeks, subject to factors such as severe weather.

“Temporary traffic lights will be used during the works. Unfortunately, these are not controlled in the same way and do not react as quickly as permanent lights, so long queues are likely on all approaches to the junction.

“Shops and businesses will be able to open as usual. For through traffic, we urge road users to seek alternative routes, if possible, particularly during peak periods. We apologise for any inconvenience.”

The scheme will cost about £125,000.
