Timings to change at pedestrian crossings, as first road layout changes progress

Story posted on

WILTSHIRE Council is making changes to the time it takes for signal controlled pedestrian crossings to turn to the green man to reduce the amount of time pedestrians are stood at a crossing, and in turn aid social distancing.

At most pedestrian crossings in Wiltshire, it can take up to 30 seconds from the time a pedestrian presses the button on a crossing for the ‘safe to cross’ green man to appear. However, this time is being reduced to a maximum of 15 seconds so pedestrians don’t have to wait so long, particularly in busy places.

Cllr Bridget Wayman, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, said: “As more people walk and cycle to work and for leisure, it’s important we do all we can to aid social distancing, and one of the ways we can do this is to change the times on pedestrian crossings throughout the county to keep people on the move.

“These changes will be rolled out over the next few weeks, starting in the larger urban areas, before moving to crossings in villages and other areas.

“We recognise this may affect traffic flow in certain locations, so we will keep this under review and make changes as necessary.”

Meanwhile, the first project to make significant changes to road layouts, to give more space to cyclists and pedestrians, is due to start and be completed in Devizes on Thursday 28 May.

The changes at St John Street and High Street will widen the footway to support pedestrians achieve social distancing, and will help to link to The Brittox shopping area.

The proposal, which is subject to a road safety audit, will reduce the length of the existing taxi rank, but it will give more pedestrian space and improve visibility as vehicles approach the zebra crossing, and will be kept under review to ensure the change is working effectively.

    Anyone who truly understands the importance of a book in everyday life can fully enjoy the process of reading. Of course, initially it seems that it is easier to choose to your taste and watch some kind of film than to read this plot in a novel. But no filmmaker is able to convey the plot of the novel to the viewer as completely as it is described in the book. Also, in the process of reading books, brain activity develops, the work of both hemispheres of the brain is activated at once. And then you understand why a person needs to read books. Therefore, why read books? We will consider the answer to this question in this article.
