Traffic Light Improvements
Posted on - October 3rd, 2012
Cheshire East Council (Highways) is to start a major programme of Traffic Signal improvements throughout the Borough starting in October 2012.
The scheme will involve replacing old type signal heads with new energy efficient LED (Light Emitting Diode) units which will substantially reduce energy costs, be more reliable and incur less maintenance costs.
Delays to the public will be minimised by not doing the work during the rush hours – unless absolutely necessary – avoiding school-run times and working at weekends on traffic-sensitive junctions. Although some delays at signal-controlled junctions will be unavoidable, temporary traffic lights will be used to control traffic flows.
