Eastway / North Preston Employment Area Traffic - Install traffic lights on Sherwood and ASDA roundabouts

We, the undersigned, petition the county council to to install traffic lights on the roundabouts leading off the North Preston Employment area (Olivers Way and Pittman Way). to reduce congestion of traffic getting off the estate onto Eastway.

The traffic situation in this area has been steadily getting worse, with people spending upwards of 40 minutes each evening trying to get out of the estate. This is increased over the winter months with the employment of seasonal staff at a number of employers.

This ePetition ran from 08/11/2018 to 20/12/2018 and has now finished.

328 people signed this ePetition.

Council response

There are currently no plans to change both roundabouts to traffic signal control. However, commencing this month, there are road widening works taking place on the approach to the Oliver Place roundabout, turning one lane to two on the southbound approach on Eastway. In addition, two signal controlled pedestrian crossings will be installed; one to the north (Eastway) and the other to the east (Olivers Place) arms of this junction.

We will continue to monitor both roundabouts after completion of the above works and will consider further traffic measures, if required.
