Traffic lights and pedestrian crossings have been proposed for a busy Scunthorpe junction in a bid to further improve safety.

The plans for the Cliff Gardens and Exeter Road crossroads are designed to make the area safer for both drivers and pedestrians

Now, residents are being urged to have their say on the plans.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, has cabinet responsibilities for highways. He said: “These proposals are most welcome, and the initial assessment suggest that this new infrastructure will greatly increase safety for motorists and pedestrians.

“We will be speaking to colleagues across the emergency services and we want the people who use this area of Scunthorpe to get in touch as well.”

Cllr John Davison, cabinet member for safer, stronger communities, urban, said: “We are always looking to enhance and develop our communities to ensure we are enabling them to be safer and stronger – these latest proposal for this busy Scunthorpe junction should do just that.”

Residents can get further information and comment on the proposals by e-mailing traffic@northlincs.gov.uk before 2 September 2022. Any comments will be considered alongside other views from partners such as fire, police and ambulance services.
