Lanehouse junction goes live

Lanehouse junction works drawing (large version)At lunchtime today the new Lanehouse signals went live.

Work started on Monday 7 February to improve the Lanehouse Rocks Road junction with Lynch Lane.

The improvements have added a dedicated right turn lane on the northbound approach, which allows traffic to pass while a separate right turn queue forms.

The pedestrian facilities have also been upgraded on all arms of the junction, and they are ‘intelligent’ so that if a pedestrian presses the button and then walks away, the crossing will cancel the action.

Dorset Highways will be monitoring the new signal setup to make sure it is running efficiently.

Thank you for your patience while this work was carried out.
