CROSSINGS on a WGC road are to be made safer at the end of this month.

Two Pelican crossings on Parkway, near Church Road, in WGC, will be upgraded to Puffin crossings.

Work is expected to start on Monday July 27 and is expected to take about three weeks. Information signs will be put in place in advance to inform pedestrians and motorists of the exact start date.

The Pelican crossings use show red man/green man signals on the opposite side of the road, while Puffin crossings, which are the county council's preferred type, show red man/green man signals on an indicator near the pushbutton.

They are designed to give users all the time they need to cross the road safely and will not let traffic pass through until they have done so.

The work will take place Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 4.30pm.
