NEW traffic calming measures in Heene Road, Worthing, are due to start next week.
Work on the £50,000 West Sussex County Council scheme is expected to take four weeks and will be largely carried out by the council’s highways contractor Balfour Beatty.
The improvements will include:
Marine Parade junction:
A new larger pedestrian island with tactile paving crossing points.
Build-out on the west side to slow traffic entering Heene Road and reduce crossing widths for pedestrians.
Rowlands Road junction:
Realignment and enlargement of pedestrian island south of Rowlands Road and tactile paving crossing points.
Hatched area and red surfacing on south-east corner of Rowlands Road to bring Give Way line forward and improve visibility northward for vehicles exiting. This will not affect movement of larger vehicles.
Manor Road Junction:
Realignment of kerb line on south-west side to bring Give Way line forward and improve visibility northward for vehicles exiting.
Crossroads warning sign north of Manor Road southbound.
The scheme will also include a new central hatched area from Marine Parade to north of Abbey Road to slow traffic approaching the shopping area and Rowlands Road junction.
