Lancaster Drivers Warned Of Temporary Traffic Plan

Lancashire County Council and the police have introduced a plan to manage traffic in Lancaster, to overcome problems with traffic signals until power supplies are permanently restored.

Drivers are asked to be cautious as the plan means some traffic lights are being temporarily turned off from this evening (Tuesday).

Power supplies cannot currently be guaranteed following the flooding which happened at the weekend, and traffic lights need a reliable power supply to operate as they're designed to.

The county council has agreed a plan with traffic police which will see:

• Some lights being turned off to avoid confusion and delays due to them malfunctioning.

• Diversions being put in place to avoid potential traffic conflict and signalised junctions at Parliament Street and Aldcliffe Road.

• Temporary traffic lights powered by generators in the following locations where they're particularly vital to manage the flow of traffic:

Carnforth canal bridge which carries Kellet Road over the Lancaster Canal.

The junction of Northgate and Westgate near the White Lund trading estate.
