North Somerset Council executive backs Queensway roundabouts plan for Worle

Millions of pounds will be bid for by North Somerset Council to carry out major transport projects in Weston and Worle.
Plans to replace traffic lights with two roundabouts at the Queensway junctions, near North Somerset Courthouse, were revealed by the Mercury last week.
The council does not plan to use traffic signals on those roundabouts.
North Somerset wants £4.51million from the Department for Transport to help pay for the work in Worle and for improving Weston Town Centre by regenerating areas around the station.
The schemes have been planned by the council for some time, but it says receiving two-thirds of the required money from the Government would allow the projects to be carried out sooner.
The grant bid was agreed by the council’s executive on Tuesday.
On the same day, the traffic lights at the revamped West Wick roundabout, were switched on following four months of roadworks.
