Rodwell Road / Avenue junction

Rodwell junction (large version)

We appreciate that there have been some difficulties for traffic exiting Rodwell Avenue due to the junction being blocked by vehicles.

This week our traffic signal engineers have carried out some changes to the phasing of the Rodwell Road/Avenue junction to improve traffic flow for vehicles exiting Rodwell Avenue.

Since the changes have been made exiting Rodwell Avenue has improved.

The phasing of the signals has changed so that when there is congestion on Rodwell Road, northbound traffic will be held at Rodwell Road/Avenue junction while southbound traffic is still moving. This will help to clear some of the congestion between Wyke Road and Rodwell Road before traffic from Rodwell Avenue can exit the junction.

We will continue to keep a close eye on the network and make improvements where necessary to ensure the system is working as efficiently as possible.

    Sorry, but the mini roundabout worked better, and much more efficiently.

    Could someone from WTP please explain why, when turning right in to Chickerell Road from Boot Hill we have to wait on a red signal when there’s no traffic heading north on Boot Hill and no one waiting to cross Chickerell Road?

      Hi Jeff Stone,

      The phasing of the signals allows us to control the network and the arterial routes, those movements that conflict with it will only be slotted in once per cycle.

      At quieter times it may look that side roads are being penalised however the offset between junctions needs to be maintained for the system to work.

      It would be helpful if you could provide me with the time of day that you refer to so that our signals team can monitor the junction to make sure there is nothing else going on.

    I’d like to know the answer to the question that Mr. Stone asked.
