New Polegate traffic lights switched on

NEW, high-tech traffic lights installed at a busy junction in Polegate have been switched on for the first time today (Wednesday, February 20).

New Polegate traffic lights

The lights, in Eastbourne Road, were replaced by East Sussex Highways after a car crash last month destroyed the traffic light controller, which controls the phasing of the lights.

Engineers had to build a new controller from scratch, remove and replace the old traffic lights and install new ducting and cabling.

The work was completed in just over a month, despite a delay to the schedule of two days caused by heavy rain last week.
