Improved pedestrian crossing to be installed in Devizes
Improvements to the crossing in Estcourt Street, Devizes are due to take place in January.
The current ageing pelican crossing outside The Bell By The Green pub is being replaced with a new modern puffin crossing. There will also be a small area of road resurfacing in the immediate vicinity of the crossing.
To keep any disruption to a minimum, work will take place from 6pm midnight, starting on 22 January for three weeks. This programme is weather-dependent so the schedule is subject to change.
There will be temporary traffic signals while the work takes place, which will be manned during peak periods to minimise delays. A temporary pedestrian crossing facility will also be in place.
On the evening the resurfacing takes place, there will be a short-term road closure.
