Upgrade to Traffic Signal in Scarborough

Upgrade to Traffic Signal in Scarborough

Published by Jon Burke at 11:10am 2nd October 2019.

Work to upgrade the traffic signals at the junction of the A64 Westborough and A165 Northway in Scarborough is scheduled to begin on Monday (7 October).

The signals are aging and need to be refurbished, but the upgrade will also improve access to the junction for people with disabilities, including new tactile paving and alterations to dropped kerbs.

The work is expected to take six weeks, depending on weather conditions. Working hours will be 7.30am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.

Temporary traffic signals with a pedestrian phase will operate throughout the work. Temporary signals are not as efficient as permanent signals, but the signals will be manually controlled between 7am and 7pm, including weekends, to minimise any delays. Operatives will also be on hand to help pedestrians.

Executive Member for Access, County Councillor Don Mackenzie, said:

“This work is essential to ensure the signals at this junction are as efficient and as accessible as possible. 

We apologise for any disruption and thank residents and road users in advance for their co-operation and patience.”

Member for Castle Division, County Councillor Janet Jefferson, added:

“While there are concerns about disruption, the benefits this work will bring to the community, not least people with disabilities, are vital.”
