A DELAYED scheme to improve pedes train safety at a busy junction in Broomhill is being scheduled for the summer of next year.

Plans have been drawn up for the junction of Fulwood Road, Crookes Road, Nile Street and Whitham Road in the district shopping centre, although it is accepted drivers could face longer waits.

The recommended option - to be presented today (Thursday) to councillors - is to create a left slip for traffic from Fulwood Road into Crookes Road and to install signal controlled crossings on Fulwood Road and Crookes Road.

An alternative option, which was much less popular with the community, involves banning left turns from Fulwood Road into Crookes Road.

Public consultation started in 2001, but the project has been held up by a lack of funds. The preferred option was costed initially at £500,000. Now the aim is to carry out the work as part of the highways repair programme, which is being rolled out across the city.
