A SERIES of changes to junctions and traffic signals is proposed to improve the flow of traffic through Hartlepool town centre and reduce delays.
The changes, which are due to be introduced in the summer, involve the following junctions.
York Road/Park Road junction
For traffic travelling west along Park Road, re-allocating the left hand lane for vehicles turning left into York Road and the right hand lane for vehicles travelling straight on.
Allowing vehicles travelling east on Park Road to turn left into York Road.
York Road/Victoria Road
For traffic travelling west along Victoria Road, reserving the left hand lane for vehicles turning left into York Road and allocating the right hand lane for traffic travelling straight on and right-turning buses.
Allowing traffic travelling east along Victoria Road to turn right into York Road.
A689/Huckelhoven Way junction
Changing the sequence of the traffic lights at this junction which currently operate on separate northbound and southbound phases on the A689, so that both phases run at the same time.
