Derbyshire County Council has announced it will be upgrading the traffic lights on a busy crossroads in Glossop.

The works will commence on April 7 and will see the renewing of traffic signals and tactile paving where Victoria Street, Norfolk Street and the High Street intersect.

The money to fund the project has come from the developer as part of an agreement set out by the council prior to the commencement of the Howard Town Mill development.

Glossop county councillors Damien Greenhalgh and Ellie Wilcox have welcomed news.

Cllr Greenhalgh said: “Ellie and I have been working with officers to improve this busy junction, especially due to bottleneck that Victoria St has become since the Howard Town Mill opened.”

Cllr Wilcox added: “These improvement will bring benefits not only vehicle users, but pedestrians and in particular those with visual impairments.”

A spokesperson for the authority’s highways department said: “We expect the disruption to be minimal, with temporary traffic signals in place for the duration of the works.”
