Essential traffic signal replacement works in Exeter and Barnstaple

Traffic lights

Posted on: 27 October 2015

Essential work is planned on two sets of traffic signals, in Exeter and Barnstaple, next month.

Maintenance replacement work is planned on the traffic signals at the Gordon’s Lamp Junction in Heavitree from Monday 2nd November 2015.

Gordon’s Lamp Junction is the junction of Magdalen Road and Fore Street.
This Devon County Council scheme is expected to be completed on Friday 20th November 2015.

The second Devon County Council scheme is at the junction of Braunton Road, Fairview, Rolle Street and Pottington Road in Barnstaple.

This scheme is due to start on Monday 9th November 2015 and is expected to be completed on Friday 27th November 2015.

These works will be coordinated with the works at Butts Road to minimise the signals costs, by treating the replacements as one scheme.

With both schemes the traffic signals, poles and electrics – which are at the end of their serviceable lives – will be replaced in addition to repairs to cable ducting where required.

Temporary traffic signals will be in place while the work is carried out and for its duration.

On the Braunton Road works the operation of the temporary signals will be the same as the permanent signals during peak and daytime hours with 3 way lights being used when needed during evening works.
