A pedestrian crossing over a busy road in Worle will be refurbished later this month.

Works on the crossing, in Queensway near Priory Community School, will start on Monday and are expected to last for a week.

The work is being carried out as part of North Somerset Council’s replacement programme.

Cllr Elfan Ap Rees, executive member with responsibility for highways, said: “We’ll be refurbishing the crossing as part of our rolling 15-year replacement programme.

“There will be temporary traffic lights in place while we carry out the work – so our crew can work safely and to provide safe crossing for pedestrians – and we’ll do our best to minimise any potential disruption on this busy route.”

The work will be carried out by Dynnig, the council’s traffic signals maintenance contractor, at a cost of £21,000.
