Traf­fic lights up­grade un­der way in city CBD

Hamilton News - - NEWS -

Work started last week to up­grade the traf­fic lights on the cor­ner of Vic­to­ria and Lon­don Streets in the Hamil­ton CBD.

The city coun­cil says the up­grade will bring im­proved safety for those who use the in­ter­sec­tion.

Ad­di­tional traf­fic sen­sors and traf­fic light dis­plays as well as more ac­ces­si­ble kerbs at pedes­trian cross­ing points will be added.

This week, work was due to start to re­place the wa­ter main on the south side of Lon­don St be­tween Vic­to­ria Street and Bar­ton Street.

The coun­cil says the work is part of ongoing main­te­nance of key city as­sets. It will re­quire open­ing sec­tions of the foot­path, and may also need work on the road.

Pedes­trian redi­rec­tions and road lane clo­sures will be re­quired from time to time. Both jobs are ex­pected to be com­pleted by the end of Septem­ber.
