Work starts soon to upgrade the traffic signals at Monks Cross.
Traffic lights at the junction of Kathryn Avenue and Jockey Lane at Monks Cross are being replaced by City of York Council.
The work – which starts on Monday 29 of April and will last about four weeks comes ahead of the new York Stadium and Leisure Complex opening later this year.
City of York Council says the stadium complex
is predicted to impact on the existing transport network, which will change the travel patterns and vehicle volumes at the junction.
The traffic signal equipment whilst not life expired, will not provide the flexibility and communications features that would assist in minimising the impacts of the travel changes that might occur when the stadium opens.
Replacing the older equipment will also allow low energy LED and electrically safer extra low voltage equipment to be installed.
