The raised crossing has been built and is available for pedestrians to use but new street lights in the area are yet to be installed.
Until the new lights are erected, the crossing will not be designated as ‘pedestrian priority’. This means that for now, pedestrians crossing the road should give way to all vehicles.
A full zebra crossing will be constructed when the lights are installed, meaning pedestrians will then have right of way and vehicles will have to give way to people on foot.
In the meantime, signage remains in place to remind pedestrians to give way to vehicles during the transition phase. Pedestrians should check carefully for oncoming traffic before crossing and allow all vehicles to safely pass before setting foot on the crossing.
We’ll provide updates as the works progress and the community will be advised when the full zebra crossing is in place.
Thanks for your co-operation and for taking extra precautions while the works continue.
