Public drop in to explain major junction improvements in Three Bridges
3rd August 2017 – West Sussex County Council
West Sussex Highways is preparing to upgrade seven junctions along Haslett Avenue in Three Bridges – and wants to tell the public all about it.
Residents and businesses are invited to come along to a public drop-in session at the Crawley Library foyer on Wednesday, August 9, from 11am to 7pm.
Engineers will be there to talk about the plans and answer any questions people may have about the scheme.
The Haslett Avenue junctions to be upgraded are:
- Stephenson Way
- Three Bridges Road
- Hazlewick Avenue
- Station Forecourt
- Station Hill
- St Mary’s Drive
- Worth Road
Work is likely to start in the autumn and last for five months.
The project is part of the first phase of the Crawley Growth Programme, which is a partnership between West Sussex County Council, Crawley Borough Council, the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership and others.
West Sussex County Council’s Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Highways, Bob Lanzer, said: “This scheme will bring newer energy efficient signal equipment, additional pedestrian crossings and a more responsive control system that links all the junctions.
“It will be a significant leap forward in managing traffic flow along Haslett Avenue.
“Before any work starts we want to give the public the chance to see the plans, talk about the scheme and raise any concerns they may have.
“So come down and speak to us next Wednesday, our officers are there all day to chat and welcome the chance to speak with you.”
Crawley Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Development, Peter Smith, said: “These proposed upgrades will benefit both motorists and pedestrians.
“Traffic will flow more freely and journey times will decrease while new crossings will make it easier and safer for pedestrians to cross busy roads.
“Please come along to the drop-in session to find out more and have your say on these proposals.”
