The traffic lights at a major road junction in Crewe are being upgraded this weekend as part of an ongoing refurbishment and energy-saving programme.
On Saturday, December 8, the traffic lights will be switched off on the Crewe Road/ Macon Way (Crewe Arms roundabout) while upgrade works take place. The junction will act as a conventional roundabout.
The works have been scheduled on a weekend to minimise delays for motorists.
The lights are being replaced with Light Emitting Diode (LED) traffic signals, which are more visible to drivers, longer-lasting and they also reduce maintenance costs compared to the existing signals.
The LED upgrade of traffic signals, which is happening across Cheshire East, will cut energy consumption by 75 per cent – significantly reducing CO2 emissions and cutting the Council’s electricity bill.
