The traffic lights at Crewe Green roundabout are being upgraded this weekend as part of an ongoing refurbishment and energy-saving programme.
On Saturday and Sunday (January 26 and 27), the traffic lights will be switched off on Crewe Green Road, University Way and Crewe Road while the work takes 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 Diodes (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.
Although the LED upgrade is solely maintenance activity, the Council is still pursuing longer-term alterations that will improve this vitally important section of the highway network.
