Here is a reply I have recived to a letter I wrote to Councillor Hayley with some observations about the Sainsbury's traffic and some suggestions:
Thank you for your email below. The Council has been successful in securing funding from the Arena Estate development to improve Green Lanes at its junction with Williamson Road and Endymion Road.
The associated highway works were completed last year and DTO are currently upgrading the traffic signals at the junction of Endymion Road. These works are anticipated to be completed by early December 2007.
The traffic controller, signal heads and posts at Williamson Road are due to be upgraded by DTO early in the New Year. The signals at Williamson Road will be linked with the Endymion Road signals which should improve efficiency, safety and increase capacity. As part of the upgrade we will also be extending the yellow box to the northbound direction. We will continue to monitor the junction after the outstanding works are completed and further measures will be considered if necessary.
Please note that both junctions are currently running on the old signal timings and we expect the capacity of both junctions to be improved when the new controllers are installed.
I hope this has answer your query and please do not hesitate to contact either myself or Demos Kettenis tel. 020 8489 1704 who’s group is responsible for the Highways works.
