Work to start on new Plymouth city centre crossing
WORK will begin to install another 'count down' crossing.
Improvements on the pedestrian crossing at the bottom of Charles Street, near Primark, will begin on Monday.
Count down signals, similar to those recently introduced on Royal Parade, will make it clearer how much time pedestrians have to cross the road.
The central reservation will also be widened to provide more space between the two sets of lights and new road markings will help to clarify which lanes motorists need to take for different destinations.
The crossing will be closed to pedestrians while work is taking place, which should be completed by the end of January.
One lane on Charles Street, the side nearest Drake Circus will be closed to traffic,
Motorists are advised to leave extra time for their journeys or use an alternative route as delays are possible.
Bus services will be running as normal.
