Work complete at ‘danger junction’
New Westleigh Junction traffic light scheme set to go live on Wednesday.
A NEW traffic light scheme at the Westleigh Junction is due to go live tomorrow (Wednesday).
The �630,000 Devon County Council scheme on the A39 near Bideford will be switched on after the morning rush hour, according to the council.
Work to improve long-standing safety issues at the junction started on September 5 and is set to be finished one week ahead of schedule.
Rodney Cann, county councillor for Fremington Rural, said: “I’m confident that it will make a significant difference to safety at this junction and will cut out problems experienced, particularly by elderly drivers.”
