Stonehouse traffic lights to be refurbished

Stroud News and Journal: Stonehouse traffic lights to be refurbished Stonehouse traffic lights to be refurbished

STONEHOUSE Town councillors have questioned the need for the planned refurbishments of traffic lights in Queen’s Road.

At a meeting on Monday, January 27, Cllr Pam Swain asked why Gloucestershire Highways was repairing the lights, which control the flow of traffic under the railway bridge, when she had never known them to be broken.

“This could cause disruption for motorists for up to four weeks,” she said.

Gloucestershire Highways plans to start work on the traffic signals on Monday, February 17 and are hoping to be finished by Friday, March 7.

During this time, Queen’s Road will be subject to a temporary no parking and no waiting restriction.

Richard Gray, local highways manager, said: “The lights are reaching the end of their productive life. A lot of the existing parts are buried underground in the footways and in the road so we need to replace and re-install them.

“We will also review how the lights operate to ensure everything is working as best as possible.”
