After years of lobbying by Lib Dem councillors, funding has been approved to upgrade the traffic lights at the junction of Widney Lane, Blossomfield Road, Longmore Road and Marshall Lake Road to improve pedestrian safety.

Local resident Lee Scott said: “Crossing the road at this busy junction has been a nightmare for pedestrians for years.”

Councillor Andy Hodgson said: “I am pleased that our persistence has finally paid off and I look forward to the changes planned for this summer.”

The traffic lights at the junction will be replaced with ones with push button pedestrian controls.
