Junc­tion changes

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - HERALD & POST -

DE­MANDS to tackle a dan­ger­ous Thorn­aby junc­tion have fi­nally been answered.

An in­ves­ti­ga­tion saw 10 ve­hi­cles mak­ing il­le­gal left or right turns at the junc­tion of Al­lensway and Ted­der Av­enue in just 20 min­utes.

But now, work is un­der way by Stock­ton Coun­cil to widen the junc­tion and al­low both left and right turns in and out of Al­lensway.

The changes are linked to the ac­cess to a new Aldi store, which is be­ing built in the area, and an ex­ten­sion of the adult learn­ing cen­tre car park.

Al­though no ac­ci­dents re­sult­ing in in­jury have been recorded in the last five years, the coun­cil’s cab­i­net mem­ber for re­gen­er­a­tion and trans­port Nigel Cooke said lo­cal peo­ple would wel­come the changes.

Work at the site is ex­pected to be com­pleted by the end of April.
