Signal fault

July 5, 2011

There are currently faults in the detection equipment at Harbour Crossroads, which is causing delays in the area.

Resurfacing overnight damaged six sensors in the middle of the junction. This means that the signals are giving the longest time of safety clearance (all red) after each phase of the junction.

The right turn into North Quay from Boot Hill is also affected; giving the minimum green time and working intermittently.

Siemens will be on site tonight and tomorrow morning to repair and reconnect the detection equipment.

Drivers are being advised to use alternative routes wherever possible.

 Westham and Harbour artists impressions (large version)

Work has started this week to plant the landscaped areas around the Harbour and Westham Crossroads.

The top-soiled areas will be grass seeded and have trees planted as agreed with the borough council parks department.

Throughout the whole scheme around 190 trees will be planted.

Trees for the unfinished junctions are being planted in a nursery and looked after until needed.

New phasing

April 5, 2011

Harbour Junction artists impression (large version)Work will take place tomorrow evening to connect the new detection equipment at Harbour Crossroads.

Weather permitting, from around 6.30pm the signals will be switched off and the junction will be controlled with four-way temporary lights.

The junction should be back online between 10pm and 11pm.

The new phasing means that the right turn into North Quay will only be allowed when Westwey Road is at red, and a longer time of all red will be given to allow trapped cars to clear the junction before the next approach is given green.

It has been confirmed that the work to install and connect additional detection equipment at Harbour Crossroads on 6 April will be carried out from 6.30pm.

The signals will be switched off and the junction will be controlled by four-way temporary lights while the work is done. The junction signals should be back on between 10pm and 11pm.

The work is weather dependent and will need to be rescheduled if it is raining.

Junction modifications

Harbour Crossroads new phasing (large version)

Work will be carried out on Wednesday 6 April to alter the phasing of Harbour Crossroads:

  • The right turn into North Quay will only be allowed when Westwey Road is at red
  • The junction will provide a longer time of all red to allow trapped cars to clear before the next approach is given green

These alterations are designed to take away doubt about the priority of traffic at the junction, which has been a cause for concern with a minority of drivers not adhering to the Highway Code.

These changes follow work to install extra road markings at the junction at the start of March and the fitting of additional detection equipment in the junction on Tuesday 29 March.

Read the press release.

Traffic management

March 28, 2011

Tomorrow, Tuesday 29 March, there will be four-way stop/go boards in use at Harbour Crossroads while a signal pole is straightened and detection equipment is installed.

Throughout the rest of this week, there will be some lane closures while further detection equipment and an additional signal pole are installed.

Junction alterations

Harbour Crossroads new road markings (large version)

Weather permitting, on Monday 7 March, new road markings will be laid at Harbour Crossroads.

After the morning commuter traffic, the junction will be controlled by four-way stop/go boards in order for the work to be carried out.

The markings should make it easier for right-turning drivers to position themselves in the junction.

Dorset Highways will be monitoring the effect the new markings have, and if necessary, will take further additional measures.

Read the press release.

Please note that the drawing may be subject to change as to ensure the new markings are visible from all directions, small adjustments may have to be made while setting them out on site.

Harbour Crossroads – you may have been wondering…

Harbour Crossroads (large version)

It’s stating the obvious, but Harbour Crossroads is a very different layout to Westham Crossroads and works in a different pattern.

At Harbour, opposing traffic flows move at the same time and it has been monitored that some drivers are having difficulty when trying to turn right – and a minority are not adhering to the Highway Code.

To try and help, the phasing of the Harbour Crossroads signals is:
