Win­nersh Tri­an­gle lights

The Wokingham Paper - - COUNCIL NEWS -

SWITCH­ING off the traf­fic lights at Win­nersh Tri­an­gle dur­ing off-peak hours “is not pos­si­ble”.

That’s the ver­dict of Cllr An­thony Pol­lock, the ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber for high­ways and trans­port.

He was re­spond­ing to a ques­tion by Lib Dem mem­ber Rachelle Shep­herd-DuBey who wanted to know if there was any progress on the pro­posal.

“The junc­tions are de­signed to op­er­ate as sig­nal con­trolled and do not meet the spec­i­fi­ca­tions to op­er­ate with­out sig­nals. To do this would be un­safe.”

He did, how­ever, prom­ise “a po­ten­tial im­prove­ment to the light se­quenc­ing”, with a test run planned be­fore Christ­mas.
