Yarm Road/Lingfield Way junction
This scheme will assist traffic travelling to and from the Yarm Road Industrial Estate, particularly at shift change times when large numbers of staff all arrive or leave work at the same time. New traffic signals will be installed which will include pedestrian and cycle crossing facilities. The existing toucan crossing to the west of the junction will be removed.
The signals will also assist buses that serve the Industrial Estate as they are currently delayed when trying to exit on to Yarm Road.
A new cycle route will be created alongside Lingfield Way as far as Allington Way. Future cycle route schemes will extend along Allington Way and northwards to Tornado Way, subject to additional funding and as part of further development, including Symmetry Park.
The scheme will start on site in June 2019 with the construction of the cycle route.
