The county council is today launching proposals to make the temporary traffic lights on Kettering Road, Market Harborough a permanent fixture, following a successful trial period.
Temporary traffic lights and a widened cycle lane on Kettering Road were installed last year using Department for Transport funding to support the increase of walking and cycling seen during the coronavirus pandemic as well as making the stretch of road safer for road users.
The proposals which the council are consulting on involves removing the ‘give way’ system which was in place in both directions of the road.
We have had a lot of very positive feedback on this scheme, which is fantastic.
We firmly believe the scheme will keep cyclists and motorists safe and ease traffic congestion by keeping traffic flowing through Market Harborough.
I urge all Market Harborough residents to let us know their views by Friday 25 June.Person:Ozzy O'Shea, Leicestershire County Council cabinet member for Highways and Transport
The consultation closes at midnight on Friday 25 June, and residents can send the council their views via email: EATF@leics.gov.uk or by contacting the Customer Service Centre on 0116 305 0001
